Bangladesh is mostly lowland, marked on the map in green. In the central part of the country are two river systems, Padma/Ganges and Jamuna, originating from neighboring India.
The high areas (orange) located in the southeast are the Chittagong Hills, part of the highly-elevated Chittagong region. Within the hills is the country’s highest peak: the Mowdok Taung that stands at 1,064 meters (3,490 feet) tall, as noted by Lonely Planet.
