Tunisia is home to two mountain ranges, the Tell Atlas and the Saharan Atlas. Despite this, it is still a fairly low-lying country. Its highest peak is the 5,098 ft tall Djebel Chaambi. Between these mountains and the sea lies a you will find a wide range of landscapes, including lush valleys and plateaus swept by the wind from the Tell Atlas.
