The area has some areas of farming land and has some larger more populated towns along with many villages on the outskirts with little population easy for the Taliban to extort and claim a foothold where the ANP hold less presence. The road network is basic but it improving with the newly elected government promising a public transport network and tarmac roads leading to every village in the area by 2022.
  • In Detail: RASMAN is the most built up town in the region. It is heavily fortified as is one of two TALIBAN strongholds in the area. There is not much known other than map data due to heavy Anti Air presence.
