Surinamese Rainforest

Suriname
The Surinamese Rainforest region comprises Suriname's three inland administrative districts: Brokopondo, Para and Sipaliwini. The area is part of the vast Amazon region and is almost entirely covered with tropical rainforest. In the southwest is the Sipaliwini savanna area. In the centre and south are mountain ranges. The highest peak is Julianatop at 1280 m. Most Amerindians and Maroons live in this region, many of them in a primitive way. Lake Brokopondo, with an area of 1,560 kmĀ², is one of the largest reservoirs in the world.
