Boundaries And Physical Features Of Nagpur
Bounded By Chindwara,Bandara,Wardha,Amravati

The Nagpur District lies between 20° 35’ and 21°  44’ N.  and78°  15’ and 79° 40’ E. in the plain to which it given its name at the southern base of the Satpura hills. It is bounded on the north by the Chindwada and Seoni Districts, on the east by Bhandara, on the south and west by Chanda and Wardha, and along a small strip on the north-west by the Amraoti District of Berar. Its area is 3840 square miles, and it is devised into four tahsils, of which katol lies north-west, Ramtek north-east, Nagpur in the centre, and Umrer south-east. The greater part of the District is an undulating plain, but it is traversed by low hill ranges. In the north a strip of the Satpura hills is included within its twelve miles or more towards the east. Immediately south of them lies the western extremity of the Ambagarh hills, on which stand the well-known temples of Ramtek. On the western border another low range of hills runs down the length of the District  and after a break formed by the valley of the Wunna river, continues to the south-east past Umrer, cutting off on its southern side the valley of the Nand. A third small range, called the pilkapar hills, crosses the Katol tahsil from north to south. There are several detached hills, notably that of Sitabaldi in Nagpur city, which is visible for a long distance. From the country round. The hills attain to no great altitude, the highest not exceeding 2000 feet, but vary greatly in appearance, being in places extremely picturesque and clothed with forest, while elsewhere they are covered by loose stones and brushwood, or wholly bare and arid. The Wardha and Wainganga rivers flow along a part of the western and eastern borders respectively, and  the drainage of the District is divided between them. The water of about a third of its area on the west are carrie to the Wardha by the Jam, the Wunna and other minor streams. The centre is drained by the pench hills, units just above Kamptee where they are also joined by the  Koilar; from here the Kanhan carries their united waters along the northern boundary of the Umrer tahsil to join the Wainganga on the Bhandara border To the east a few small streams flow direct to the Wainganga. The richest part of the District is the western half of the Katol tahsil, cut off by the small ranges described above. It possesses a soil profusely fertile, and teems with the richest garden cultivation. Beyond the Pilkapar hills, the plain country extends to the eastern border. Its surface is scarcely ever level, but it is closely cultivated, abounds in mango-groves and trees of all sorts, and towards the east is studded with small tanks which form quite a feature in the landscape. The elevation of the plain is from 900 to 1000 feet.
