  • It is an undulating sandy plain covered with sand dunes.
  •  This region receives very low rainfall 150mm per year. It has arid climate with low vegetation. 
  • Streams appear during rainy season and disappear into the sand soon as they do not have enough water to reach the sea.
  • Luni is the only large river in this region.
  • Barchans are crescent-shaped sand dunes produced by the action of wind predominately from one direction.
  • They cover larger areas but longitudinal dunes become more prominent near the Indo Pakistan boundary. These are also visible in Jaisalmer.
