The tract is mostly one large tract, unlike the Barind Tract. It is approximately one to ten metres above the nearby floodplains.[1]

The tract is considered an area of jungle-covered old alluvium.[2] It is an elevated plateau, with hillocks of varying height, ranging from 30 to 60 feet. There are also cultivated valleys.[3]
