Mukutmanipur lies under the Chotonagpur Plateau. Here the Gangetic plain gradually rises its altitude and by rising upward it meets with an undulating platform, The Chotonagpur Plateau. In West Bengal the average altitude of the plateau is around 300 meters. Damodar is the main river of the plateau. Rivers like Kansai, Silabati, Darakeswar are generated from the plateau and by creating deep marks they fall into the Gangetic plain.
Here minerals are scattered beneath the ground and above it Elephants makes their footprint. The whispering songs of Mother Nature flows across its dry deciduous forests.
