Kulachi Tehsil is an administrative subdivision (tehsil) in Dera Ismail Khan District of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.[1]


The tehsil is administratively subdivided into 15 Union Councils, once of which form the headquarters - Kulachi.[1]


During British rule Kulachi was a tehsil of the old Dera Ismail Khan District. It was described as follows in the Imperial Gazetteer of India:[2]

Kulāchi Tahsīl.-Western tahsīl of Dera Ismail Khān District, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, consisting of the country immediately below the Sulaiman mountains, between 30’ 15” and 32’ 17” N. and 70’ 11” and 70’ 42” E., with an area of 1,509 square miles (3,910 km2). In appearance the tract bears a generic resemblance to the Dera Ismail Khan tahsil, except for the stony plain and the line of barren and unsightly hills which form its western border. The plain is much cleft by deep channels which carry off the rain-water from the hills, and these are utilized for irrigation with great skill. The population in 1901 was 55,053, compared with 52,270 in 1891. The headquarters are at Kulachi (population, 9,125), and the tahsil also contains 81 villages. The land revenue and cesses in 1903-4 amounted to Rs. 96,000. The main language of the tehsil is pashto.
