Seer Gharbi is one of the 51 Union Councils of Abbottabad District in the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan [ [http://www.abbottabad.sdnpk.org/adminunit.htm Administrative Units of District Abbottabad] ] . It is located in the southeastern part of the province, bordering the Rawalpindi District of Punjab province (the Murree Hills area).

Seer Gharbi also shares a border with the following Union Councils "within" Abbottabad District - to the north by Tajwal, to the east Nara and Nagri Totial, to the South by Seer Sharqi Bhattian and to the west by Palak.

The terrain of the whole area is hilly and mountainous, to the South lie the plains of the Punjab, travellers from the South find the land rising, the Murree region signals the start of the himalayan mountain range. The higher altitude makes the climate of this area cooler than the land to the south, and there is usually heavy snowfall in the winter blocking roads and making travel difficult.
