Djibouti is an East African country with an area of 23,200 sq. km. As observed on the map, most of the country is a desert wasteland. From the narrow coastal plain of the country to the north, the land gradually rises in elevation to form a series of mountains. Some of these like the Mabla Mountains and Goda Mountains have been marked on the map. The highest peak of the country marked on the map with an upright yellow triangle is the 2,063 m high stratovolcano of Mousa Ali to the northeast.

Central and south Djibouti is covered by a stony desert and scattered volcanic plateaus crisscrossed by deep, time-worn troughs, some with shallow salt water lakes.

The lowest point of the country is Lake Assal at 155 m. Lake Assal, also the lowest point of Africa, is located in central-eastern Djibouti and is a crater lake whose salinity levels are 10x that of the sea. Lake Assal is one of the most saline bodies of water, after Don Juan Pond, and is the world's largest salt reserve.

Another important lake, Lake Abbe, can be observed on the map on the southwestern border of Djibouti with Ethiopia. No permanent rivers flow in the country but some rivers flowing underground are known.
