Elevation (mDpl)
In general, the topographic conditions within the Way Kambas National Park area are relatively flat up to slightly undulating in the western part of the region, In the eastern part of the region is the valley area cut off by rivers that cause the formation of wavy topography.

Based on Map of Land and Land Sheet Tanjungkarang (PPT, 1993) there are nearly 10 units of Land Map. The soils evolved from alluvium deposits and sour tufa deposits. The most widespread soil type is Podsolik, while other species are found in narrow areas, ie in alluvial and marine physiography. Podsolic soils have a high clay content (more than 30%). This soil type has a sour soil reaction, with high Al (alumunium), low nutrient content, so it needs liming and fertilization as well as land management intensively and carefully. Type podzolik soil easily catch water but relatively difficult to be utilized because of high enough clay content, other than that the type of soil is high enough (Introduction to ground science-UGM).

Based on the age of its formation increasingly to the east approaching the coastal area, the average age of the soil is relatively young, as a result of sedimentation or sedimentation. The soil type is easily affected by erosion.
