What Is The Flattest Country In The World?

The Maldives is a chain of islands in the Indian Ocean, about 350 miles southwest of India.

The Maldives include about 2,000 islands spread over a distance of 500 miles. Even with all those islands, the total area of the Maldives is just 115 square miles, about the size of Portland, Oregon!

If you like mountains, or even hills, then the Maldives is not the place to visit. The Maldives is the flattest country in the world. The highest point in the Maldives is the lowest high point in the world.

No point on any of the 2,000 islands in the Maldives is more than 13 feet above sea level!
