A mountain situated in the outermost southwest part of the Republic of Macedonia, which, in the form of a typical horst, rises in between the Ohrid Valley to the west and the Prespa Valley to the east. To the north it is continued by the mountains of Petrino and Istok, and by the Bukovo col (1.207 m) it is morphologically separated from the Plaken Mountain. It stretches 50 km along the meridian, and its smallest width is between the village of Trpejca and the village of Leskoec (10 km). Only the southernmost parts of Galichica rise above 2.000 m. Its part south of Zli Dol is called Old Galichica. It is the highest part of the national park with the most remarkable relief. Its sides cut steeply toward the lakes and are furrowed with dry ravines, which give the mountain an inaccessible look. It lowest points are at the level of Lake Ohrid (695 m.) and the level of Lake Prespa (850 m), with its highest peak being Magaro (2.255 m), and there is another peak at an altitude of 2.275 m situated on the very border with Albania.
A mountain massif located in the southwest of the Republic of Macedonia, with Pelister as its highest peak (2.601 m). By virtue of the multi-staged tectonic activities, the mountain rises in a typical horst between the Pelagonia Valley to the east and the Prespa Valley to the west. To the north, via the mountain pass Gjavato (1.167 m) and Capari field, it is morphologically separated from the Bigla Mountain (1.656 m), while to the south it continues in Greece, all the way up to the mountain pass Vigla (1.505 m), along the Florina – Kastoria road. It stretches along the meridian to a total length of 35 km. The border between Macedonia and Greece passes through its southern parts. Within the territory of our country it covers an area of 436 km2. The dominant geomorphologic form of the high mountain area is the main ridge of the mountain, which also serves as a water divide between the Adriatic and the Aegean basins. Apart from Pelister, there are several other mountain peaks rising above 2.000 m from the ridge. Those are the following: Stiv (2.468 m), Visoka Cuka (2.182 m), Vrteska (2.010 m), Ilinden (2.542 m), Golemo Stapalo and (2.415 m).
