Pulau Telan (Telang), the SW point of which forms the SE limit of Selat Riau, is irregularly shaped and nearly 5 miles long, NE and SW, and about 1 mile wide.

It is divided into two parts and may be identified by a square hillock on its S end, 63m high, which, with a sharper peak W of it, forms a saddle; the land from here to the W end is the same elevation.

A reef fringes the W end of Telang Besar to a distance of about 0.2 mile, with depths of 11 to 12.8m close-to; a patch of 6.9m lies 0.35 mile W of the W extremity of the island.

Selat Telan (Selat Telang) (Telang Strait), between Pulau Senjolong and Pulau Telan, is about 2 miles wide. Another channel lies between Pulau Mantang and Pulau Senjolong on the S and the coast of Pulau Bintan to the N. These channels should only be used by vessels with local knowledge.
