Malot Sattian is situated about 16 km north of Kotli, from where it can be approached by a metalled road to Rawalakot, Azad Kashmir. It extends eastwards through by means of a bridge across the Jhelum river, 5 km from Malot to Kalliari Patton and thence to Bagh in Azad Kashmir. The village stands on 4500 ft high ridge which acts as a water divide between the Jhelum river in the east and it’s tributary, Khad in the West. The slopes facing the two streams have a gullied topography. This is mainly due to the erosion action of the stream-lets. The Chajjana reserve forest lies near this village.
It commands a strategic position on Punjab-AJK border and serves as a terminal point for the transport coming from Rawalpindi.
The village covers a 3,636 acre area, 1,423 acres are cultivated and 2,213 acres are uncultivated. The major food staples are wheat and maize.
