Mentioned in Carpe Jugulum and The Fifth Elephant this is a country on the far side of Klatch, to which you must travel via Cape Terror if going by boat from Ankh-Morpork. Sir Samuel Vimes sent the Assassin the Hon Eustace Bassingly-Gore there in chains. Since Ghat's best-known neighbour is Muntab, this is about as far back of beyond as possible. Ghat is only sketchily described, but there are jungles, lions, tigers and brown-skinned people in turbans. it may not be a Discworld expy of Roundworld's India, in the same way XXXX is only coincidentally reminiscent of Australia.
