Gala Hills

Sardhi has landscape features including the canyons in Thirchak-Mahal and the yellow beds of muster"Surson". There are many man-made and natural lakes around the city in Kallar Kahar,
The Sardhi valley, Kalar khar is situated on the road coming from Mani adda facing West to East about 8 km in length between the villages of Kotli and Ara at 3,000 feet (910 m) above sea level. The weather during the summer is very pleasant and the hills are full of green bushes and olive trees. An interesting place of this valley is the Picnic Point of GALA hill top which is at 3,500 feet (1,100 m) above sea level. On the top of this hill is a shrine called PEER KHARA. Many people from local villages and from all parts of the country often visit the shrine and offer sacrifices. From the hill top one can see the great Punjab plains. To the north are the Margla hills and to the south one can see the Jhelum River. On the East & West side one can see the beautiful greenery of adjoining hills with rain forests consisting of thick jungle trees and bushes. Alexander the Great passed through this area (old Nandana Fort) near Ara on his way to fight Raja Porus on the banks of the Jhelum River in 326 BC.

Another well-known tourist place in the area is Kalar Kahar for which Zahir uddin Baber said “Kaller Kahar is a child of Kashmir[citation needed]. Kalar Kahar is 2,500 feet (760 m) above sea level and Chehl Abdal is 3,500 feet (1,100 m) above sea level.

Sardhi is a beautiful place in Chakwal.
The famous temple-fort of Katas Raj is nearby also Chakwal has a well connected road network including a road to Jhelum and Lahore via the Sohawa road, a road to Pind Dadan Khan via the Choa Siaden Shah road, a road to Sargodha via Bhon and Khushab, a road to Rawalpindi via Mandra and to Mianwali via the Talagang Road.

It is connected to the GT road between Peshawar and Lahore via Sohawa and Mandra, the Indus Highway via Mianwali, and M2 Motorway via Kallar Kahar and Balkassar exits. The travelling distances and time has reduced considerably to Lahore, Rawalpindi, Sargodha, and Faislabad since the commissioning of the M2 Motorway

Agriculture Sardhi

Sardhi is a semi-arid area with serious shortage of water for agriculture. Over 70% of the population engages in agriculture, mostly subsistence agriculture that is dependent on rain. Most villages have no irrigation system.

Cricket Ground

Although the areas around the SArdhi Villege and generally free of pollution as there isn't much industry in the area, Chakwal city is one of the polluted cities in Pakistan. There is no government sponsored garbage disposal system, and citizens in urban and rural areas do not have proper means to dispose of garbage, particularly plastic bags. Most of the streets in the city and small towns are littered with trash that results in infectious diseases in summer and rainy seasons. During Musharaf's regime three cement factories were constructed in the Salt Range hills.
