About this image

Between the highlands of Terra Cimmeria and the low plains of Nepenthes Planum lies the rugged region called Nepenthes Mensae. Hills in this region vary in height and the surrounding surface can vary greatly in texture. The term mensae means a flat-topped prominence with cliff-like edges. Hepenthes Mensae is the largest mensae on Mars, covering 2176km (1352 miles) in length.
