Mount Kyllini

Mount Kyllini

Mount Kyllini is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.376m (7,795ft) above the sea level, located in the west of the prefecture of Corinthia in Greece. It's one of the highest roads of the country.

The road to the summit, located on the Peloponnesus peninsula, is gravel and rocky. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). Great trail for experienced wheelers. Avoid driving in this area if unpaved mountain roads aren't your strong point. Due to the high elevations and exposure, the road is subject to strong winds and rapid weather changes. Be prepared for the cold and wind! High winds blow here all year long. From the top a large portion of northeastern Peloponnesus is visible, including the eastern part of Achaia and Chelmos, the Gulf of Corinth and most of Corinthia, the southern part of Corinthia and parts of northeastern Arcadia.

4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. The peak is also known as Mount Cyllene. This is definitely not a Sunday drive. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with dangerous dropoffs. With drops that appear to be hundreds, if not a thousand feet to the side, experienced drivers are the only ones who should attempt this route. The Peloponnesus area offers much opportunity for 4x4 tracks.
