Covered mostly with tropical jungle, the central part of KoSamui includes its highest mountain, KhaoPom with a height of 635 meters. The island is mainly connected by roads and Route 4169 encircles the entire island running at the length of 51 kilometer. Various lowland and coastal areas are connected by the service roads branching off from Route 4169.
