the Indian Ocean. The total area covered by the country
is 527970 square kilometres.
The west, east and south of the country is dominated by thin coastal plains. The northern area of the country has a high desert which lines its international boundary.
The desert is called the Tihamah and is 419 kilometres in length. The country’s mountain ranges rise gradually and finally at Jabal al Shuayb the highest point is reached at 3666 metres above sea level. The ranges are separated into western and central highlands. The former consist of arable land with peaks touching the 3000 metre mark whereas the latter is more like a plateau region with rolling hills. The north-eastern region of the country is called the empty quarter as it is fully a desert.
The country has no permanent rivers; they only come alive during the monsoon or wet season. The Wadi Hadhramaut is the most important among all of them. The river waters the eastern parts of the country. The country also has long coastlines which add up to a massive 1906 kilometres. The coasts are shared with the Gulf of Aden, Arabian Sea and Red Sea.
