Mt. Ziria (or Mt. Kylini, 2.374 μ.) is the highest mountain of Korinthia and the second of Peloponnese, just behind Mt. Taygetos. Like the others massifs of the mountain wall of Northern Peloponnese, Mt Ziria rises sharply from the sea level to its peaks, most of them going over 2000m. A large plateau spreads at 1500m and hosts the small lake of Dassios. The Ziria massif is divided into two complexes, the Major Ziria and the Little Ziria (2,080 m). The two complexes surround the ravine of Flambouritsa, from where the Trikalitikos river, Sythas river of antiquity, flows.
