Čakorpass

The Čakor Pass road was built 100 years ago

Čakorpass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.844m (6,049ft) above the sea level, located in the municipality of Plav, in Montenegro, near to the border with Kosovo.

Set high in the Prokletije mountain range, the road to the summit is mostly paved and navigable by all passenger vehicles. It's called M9. The road is paved only on the Montenegrin side and was closed during the Kosovo War in 1999, until 2011.

The road is pretty narrow and steep, hitting an 18% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. The pass, also known as Prevoj Čakor, is 37.3km (23,17 miles) long, running west-east from Murino (a village in the municipality of Plav, Montenegro) to Kuqishtë (a village in the municipality of Peja, Kosovo). The road was inaugurated on 17th September 1925 by Alexander I of Yugoslavia. This road is planned to be bypassed by a tunnel.
