The Thompson River dominates the northern three-quarters of this region, as it winds its way to the town of Lytton, at which point it spills into the Fraser River. The most northern section of this region is very rugged as it contains the Cariboo Mountains, and most notably, Mount Robson, the highest mountain of the B.C. Rocky Mountains. The central area of this region contains Adams Lake, Shuswap Lake, and Kamloops Lake. The southern portion, with its rolling hills, contains Okanagan Lake, with its fabled lake monster, Ogopogo. These lakes are some of British Columbia's largest and deepest lakes.
