Jhala is the southernmost of the three largest of the Summer Islands, and the largest overall. Walano and Omburu are each less than half the size of Jhala, though either of them is still larger than all the landmass of the Stepstones combined. As with the other two large islands in the chain, Jhala is large enough to support multiple rival princedoms.
The Red Flower Vale is a river valley in eastern Jhala and the Sweet Lotus Vale is a river valley in western Jhala. Ebonhead is a town on its southern coast at the mouth of the Sweet Lotus Vale. To its north are the Indigo Straits and the island of Omboru. To the south is Parrot Bay and the three islands called The Bones, as well as the islands Doquu and Xon. The Golden Head is a peninsula in southeast Jhala. To the north of Golden Head is a group of small islands called Lizard Head. To the west is the island Moluu.
