The Kala Chitta Mountain Range, Attock DistrictThe Kala Chitta mountain range may be roughly described as a wedge with its base resting on the Indus which is at its western extremity, gradually tapering as it proceeds eastward to its apex, about 15 miles North-West of Rawalpindi and within about three miles of the extremity of the Margalla mountain range. Its breadth at its base is about 12 miles, at the Eastern end it tapers out to nothing. Its length is 45 miles. The range is formed of two portions differing very much in appearance from each other.
The South-West portion known as Kala Pahar (Black Mountain) is formed of very dark sandstone and red clay. This portion extends along the Southern side from the Indus, throughout the Pindigheb tehsil, ending at the village of Gaggan. It is 35 miles long and 4 miles wide.
The Chitta Pahar (White Mountain) which forms the main portion of the range runs the whole length of the range on its Northern side. Its breadth at its base on the Indus is about 8 miles. This portion is formed of white limestone, hence its name. Photo by FARZAH.

Attock Bridge during reconstruction (1925-1929)The bridge reconstruction, carried out a cost of about Rs. 2.5 million, was the work of Mr. W.L. Everall. It was particularly difficult because it had to be executed entirely during the intervals between the passing of trains, the maximum uninterrupted time available being three hours and usually only about one hour. The reconstructed bridge was opened on 30th August 1929.
