Pakistan geologically overlaps onto both South Asia and the Eurasian landplate. The provinces of Sind and Punjab are found in the northwestern corner of the Indian subcontinent, while Baluchistan and
most of the North West Frontier Province exist on the Iranian plateau and are coextensive with the Middle East and Central Asia. The Northern Areas and Azad Kashmir also lie mainly in Central Asia along the edge of the Indian plate and as a result are prone to severe earthquakes where Eurasia and the Indian subcontinent collide. Pakistan western borders include the Khyber Pass and Bolan Pass, traditional invasion routes between Central Asia and the Indian Subcontinent.
