Katara Pass - Pindus National Park

The Katara Pass or Metsovo Pass is a mountain pass in the Pindus mountains in northern Greece. It is 5 km northeast of the townMetsovo. Situated on the border ofEpirus (Ioannina regional unit) and Thessaly (Trikala regional unit), it forms the divide between the river basins of the Aoos to the southwest and the Pineios to the east. Its elevation is about 1,705 m (5,594 ft) making it one of the highest in the nation. The Greek National Road 6 (Larissa-Trikala- Metsovo -Ioannina-Igoumenitsa) crosses the Katara Pass. With the opening of theEgnatia Odosmotorway which passes through tunnels further south, traffic has sharply declined.
