Tunisia has a Mediterranean climate in the north, with mild rainy winters and hot, dry summers. The south of the country is desert. The relief in the north is mountainous, which, moving southwards, gives way to the hot, dry central plain. Along a line stretching east-west along the northern tip of the Sahara, from Gulf of Gabès up to Algiers, can be found a number of salt lakes that are known as “chotts” or “shatts”.The lowest point is Chott el Djerid at 17 metres (56 ft) below sea level, and the highest is Jebel ech Chambi at 1,544 metres (566 ft).
