Its tributaries in Kurdistan are the Kauleh and Tarval river.
Schindler says the principal branches of this river rise in the mountains of
’Abbas Beg, in Ardalan, in about Lat. 35° 50', Long 46° 45', 8 or 9 miles north
west of Sahna towards Senna. Thence it makes an exceedingly tortuous
course about 100 miles in the general direction of north-east.

covered with vineyards more than half way up.— (Gerard.)
It is 500 paces south of Baneh. It is well wooded and has good pastures-
The plant hiusa is found here.
See Report on Kurdistan, Part I.
The Avroman range lies south-west of, and parallel to, the Zagros mountains.
The hills are wild and rocky, only traversed by foot-paths. Between Avroman
and Zagros is a narrow valley, through which runs a direct road to Kirmanshah
from Sulaimanieh called the Shamian road. Through this valley flows a little
river, which comes down from the Giuran pass and falls into the Diala (Ab-i-
Shim an).
The local name for the mountains which shut in on either side the valley of
the Cham-i-Garran in Kurdistan. They are sometimes called the Kuh-i-
Cham-i-Garran and form part of the great Zagrgs range. It is traversed
here by the Senna-Sulaimanieh road.— (Ploivden.)
„ A range of hills in Persian Kurdistan, apparently to tha north-west of Senna.
They run north and south, and are said to terminate in a plateau of the same
elevation as Hamadan, to which there is a road over them from Sulaimanieh,
there being scarcely any descent to that place. I imagine this name must be
applied to a portion of the main Kurdistan range, dividing Ardalan from Sulai
manieh and Kirmanshah.— (Rich.)
