Description:
<!-- Deleted image removed: -->Karoonjhar Mountains are located in Tharparkar, Sindh, Pakistan.

The Karoonjhar Mountain in Tharparkar area of Sindh has geological formation of pre-Cambrian character relating to the first period in the Palaeozoic era. The Khirthar range of mountains in the west of Sindh, the Lakki hills near Sehwan, Ganjo Takar of Hyderabad, Rohri hills, and Karachi hills carry evidence of the stone age.

This the only hill in the district near Nagarparkar on the northern edge of the Rann of Kutch. It consists of granite rocks, (probably an outlying mass of the crystalline rocks of the Aravalli range. The Aravalli series belongs to Archaen system which constitutes the oldest rocks of the Earth's crust) and Chinese clay. This is a small area quite different from the desert. The tract is flat and level except close to Nagarparkar itself. The principal range, Karunjhir,is approximately 19&nbsp;km in length and attains a height of 305 m. Smaller hills rise in the east, which are covered with sparse jungle and pasturage and give rise to two perennial springs named Achleshwar and Sardharo as well as temporary streams called Bhetiani and Gordhro, after the rains. Karoonjhar Dam is being constructed to supply water to people of Nagarparkar area.
