The horizon of the gulf is hemmed in by a chain of peaks that lead into the seemingly endless range of the Roumeli mountains. Before heading towards the better-known mountains of Aitolia and Akarnania, it is worth pausing to explore the labyrinth of peaks and mountain valleys of Nafpactia, an area known as Kravvara. Here, sharp peaks rise dramatically above sheer slopes and the visitor will be amazed to find endless rows of cultivated terraces in this inhospitable terrain. This labour of thousands of people over the centuries has not only allowed them to survive in a barren environment, but has enriched the natural variety of plant and wild life in the area. In the region of Ano Hora, a traditional village in east Kravvara, a network of paths has been recently restored and marked that connects it with Kato Hora, Aghio Dimitrio and Krioneria, Podo, and Ambelakiotissa.
