Pelister (2601 m) is the highest peak of Baba Mountain and the third highest peak in Macedonia. Pelister is often used as name of the Baba Mountain and also as synonymous with the city of Bitola.

The peak Pelister with the slopes of Baba Mountain, in 1948 are proclaimed a National park, mainly due to the relict of the tertiary flora – Molika (Pinus Peuce Griseb) and the morphological and glacial relief in the alpine part of the mountain.

Molika is five-needled pine tree that beside Pelister, can be seen only in few parts on Balkan Peninsula.

Besides Pelister, Baba Mountain has 23 other peaks higher than 2000 meters: Ilinden (2,542 m), Stiv (2,468 m), Veternica (2,420 m), Muza (2,351 m), Rzana / Bojadjiev Vrv (2,334 m), Shiroka (2,218 m), Griva (2,193 m), Kozji Kamen (2,182 m), Visoka Chuka (2,182 m) and others.
