South Sudan is a mix of plains, plateaus, and mountains. The central region is mostly flat with vast swampland like the Sudd formed by the White Nile Baḥr al-Jabal section. But the country contains highland areas, especially around its periphery. For example, the Ironstone Plateau straddles its western border with the Central African Republic.

Additionally, the Imatong Mountains lie in the south near the border of Uganda. This mountain chain is the most prominent in the country and contains Mount Kinyeti. It is South Sudan’s highest peak at 3,187 meters (10,456 ft).
