With an area of 27,834 sq km (10,747 sq mi), Burundi is one of Africaís smallest countries. Most of the country is a hilly plateau region, with elevations ranging between 1,400 and 1,800 m (between 4,600 and 5,900 ft). Elevations decrease gradually to the east and southeast. The narrow western margin, bordering the Ruzizi River and Lake Tanganyika, lies in the trough of the Great Rift Valley. Southeast of Bujumbura, Burundiís highest peak, Karonje, rises to an elevation of 2,760 m (9,055 ft).
