The island is about 60 km from the southwestern tip of the India. And it contains a variety of habitats, from the hot, dry plains of the north, east and south, to the central mountains that ascend 2,524 m above mean sea level (Piduruthalagala). Major rivers in the island include Mahaweli River (335 km). The coast of Sri Lanka is fringed with sandbars and lagoons.
