Jhalawar district is an expanse of fertile plain having rich black-cotton soil. It is watered by several rivers, giving it a verdant look. The largset river flowing through the area is Kali Sindh which flows through the territory to join the Chambal, Rajasthan's largest river. Other rivers include Ujaad, Ahu, Parvan, Chavli, etc.
The Aravali hills, which are the most ancient folded mountain range in India, crosses the region, roughly dividing the plains of hadoti from the Malwa plateau. These hills and the surrounding areas were once thickly forested and teemed with wildlife.
