Pico Duarte is the highest peak in the Dominican Republic, and in all the Caribbean. At 3,098 m (10,164 ft) above sea level, it gives Hispaniola the 16th-highest maximum elevation of any island in the world. Additionally, it is 85 kilometres (53 miles) northeast of the region’s lowest point, Lake Enriquillo, in the Cordillera Central range, the largest in the country and island. The Cordillera Central extends from the plains between San Cristóbal and Baní to the northwestern peninsula of Haiti, where it is known as Massif du Nord. The highest elevations of the Cordillera Central are found in the Pico Duarte and Valle Nuevo massifs.
