The Republic of Liberia is a country located in West Africa. It is bordered by Sierra Leone on the west, Guineato on its north and the Ivory Coast on its east. It covers an area of about 111,000 square kilometres. It faces the North Atlantic Ocean on its southwestern coastline.
The country’s landscape mostly consists of flat as well as plain coastal areas laid with swamps and mangroves. These rise to a plateau surrounded by low mountains. Tropical rainforests cover the hills, while elephant grass and semi-deciduous forests make up the dominant vegetation in the northern sections.
Liberia's main northwestern boundary is traversed by the Mano River while its southeast limits are bounded by the Cavalla River. Liberia's three largest rivers are St. Paul exiting near Monrovia, the river St. John at Buchanan and the Cestos River, all of which flow into the Atlantic. The Cavalla is the longest river in the nation at 515 kilometres (320 mi).
The highest point wholly within Liberia is Mount Wuteve at 1,440 metres (4,724 ft) above sea level in the northwestern Liberia range of the West Africa Mountains and the Guinea Highlands. However, Mount Nimba near Yekepa, is higher at 1,752 metres (5,748 ft) above sea level but is not wholly within Liberia as Nimba shares a border with Guinea and Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) and is their tallest mountain as well. 36 square kilometres (43,000 sq mi) and is home to about 4 million people.
