Karava

Karava

Karava is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.824m (5,984ft) above the sea level, located in the Karditsa regional unit in Thessaly, Greece. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

Located in the Agrafa Mountains, in the southernmost part of the Pindus range, the road to the summit is gravel. 4x4 vehicle required. The road is very exposed. It’s narrow with some steep parts. It’s usually impassable from November to May. The pass links the villages of Petrochori and Oxya. It is an area with rather difficult access and that’s why it’s mostly undiscovered by a lot of people. It has been nominated as one of the cleanest areas in the world.
