Bugti Hills

▪ hill range, Pakistan
      hill range in Pakistan, comprising the tribal tract known as Bugti country. A westward continuation of the Sulaimān Range, pointing toward the Quetta node, it is a barren area inhabited by the nomadic Bugtis, a Baluchi tribe. The discovery of natural gas deposits at Sūi (q.v.) has brought new economic life to the area. Several valleys and plateaus in the range are being brought gradually under cultivation.
