Mount Karthala is 2316 metres high and is an active volcano located on one of the islands. The country falls between south latitude 12 degrees and 10 minutes and east longitude 44 degrees and 15 minutes. The largest island of the group is also the youngest and has been formed due to volcanic activity.
The volcano to the north is known as La Grille which sits at a height of 1000 meters and the volcano to the south is known as Karthala. The mountains are connected by a high and flat plateau. The islands does not possess the capability to hold water so manmade reservoirs areused to store water during monsoons.
The second island holds 3 small mountain ranges Jimilime, Sima and Nioumakele. The three chains originate from the centre of the islands from a mountain called the Mtingui. The smallest island in the group also has a distinct mountain range which reaches its apex at approximately 860 meters. The oldest island possesses the most amount of arable land due to its rich soil.
