Physical Features

Orissa can be divided into two major parts, one being the coastal plains and the other being the northwestern plateau.

The coastal region varies in width except in the Ganjam district where the eastern hills attain their highest altitude at 1,500 metres.

Mahanadi and its tributaries cross through this region and create a large delta, which is very fertile. The rivers bring enormous water and sometime cause dangerous floods.
