Azerbaijan is a mountainous country, with the Caucasus Mountains covering the north and central regions.

Many snow-capped peaks exceed 12,000 ft., with Baza-Dyuzi the highest point, at 14,698 ft. (4,480m).

Moving southwest, the Lesser Caucasus cross the land, stretching on into Armenia, and in the far-south, the Talish Mountains help form its border with Iran.

A low flood plain covers the south-central and east, ending at the Caspian Sea; much of it below sea level.

Baku, the capital city, sits on the Abseron Yasaqligi (or Apsheron Peninsula), that juts hook-line into the Caspian Sea

Significant rivers include the Alazani, Aras and Kura, and the Mangachevir Reservoir is the largest inland body of water.
