The Amfilissos River rises in the southern slopes of the Ambelos Mountain

it flows through a gorge near Pyrgos, and then through hilly terrain,
where it is joined by many tributaries before reaching the sea at Balos.

The villages of Koumeika, Neochori and Skoureika occupy key locations in this terrain:
