Aside from Turkish Thrace's low, rolling hills, fertile river valleys that open to the Aegean Sea, the warm Mediterranean plains of Antalya and Adana, and the narrow littoral along the Black Sea, the country is wrinkled by rugged mountain ranges that surround and intersect the high, semiarid Anatolian plateau. In the west, average heights range from 600 meters (2,000 feet) to over 1,800 meters (6,000 feet) in the untamed eastern highlands. Mount Ararat (Büyük Agri Dagi, 5,166 m/16,949 ft) is the highest point in Turkey, rising just within the Turkish border at the intersection of the Turkish, Armenian, and Iranian borders.
