Mopti region, Mali
The 100 m false-colour image of 28 February 2016 shows us a nice view of the Tombouctou and Mopti region. Tombouctou Region is one of the administrative regions of Mali. It is the largest of Mali's eight regions and includes a large section of the Sahara Desert. Mopti Region, another administrative region of Mali, bordered by Tombouctou Region to the north, Ségou Region to the southwest, and Burkina Faso to the southeast. The Niger River crosses the region, and is joined by the Bani, an important tributary, at the city of Mopti. Tombouctou region is world-famous for its capital, the ancient city Timbuktu, synonymous to 19th-century Europeans as an elusive, hard-to-reach destination.
