The island of Sri Lanka lies in the Indian Ocean, to the southwest of the Bay of Bengal and to the southeast of the Arabian Sea. It is separated from the Indian subcontinent by the Gulf of Mannar and the Palk Strait.
The island consists mostly of flat-to-rolling coastal plains, with mountains rising only in the south-central part. This mountainous area of the country is depicted here in this orthorectified image. Amongst these is the highest point Pidurutalagala, reaching 2,524 metres (8,280 ft) above sea level.
