The Pothohar Plateau (also spelled Pothwar, Potwar or Potohar) (Urdu: سطح مرتفع پوٹھوہار) is a plateau in Punjab, Pakistan. The area was the home of the Soan Culture (a stone age culture), and there are many fossils, tools, coins, and remains of ancient archaeological sites. It borders the western parts of Azad Kashmir and the southern part of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The local people speak a dialect of Punjabi, called Pothohari or 'Potwari'.
