Geography
LocationSaint Lucia

Mount Gimie is the tallest mountain on the island of Saint Lucia. The mountain's peak reaches 950 m (3117 ft). It is covered by lush tropical rainforest and was formed as the result of intense volcanic activity 200,000 to 300,000 years ago. Mount Gimie is still volcanic and so are many other of the Pitons (a couple of volcanic plugs in which Mount Gimie belongs).[citation needed]
