Only the main Tella Rivers have water all the year round, and even then the summer stream is small. Any of the rivers isn't navigable. Mountainous areas of the High Plateau badly pour down; the majority of the rivers and streams (streamlets) flows irregularly as they depend on water at unstable rainfall. In High Platonakh is a lot of salt swamps and dry or shallow salty lakes (себхас or drot). The earth more and more dry becomes farther on the South, merging with absolutely dry desert.
