The Kabul Basin is a plateau surrounded by mountains located in the eastern central part of the country, and is the site of the Afghan capital. The Kabul Basin covers an area of around 1600 Km² and is divided up into three sub-basins. Basin fill mainly comprises Tertiary and Quaternary terrestrial and lucustrine sediments, primarily consisting of marls and interbedded sand and gravel horizons.
