The Kassam Pass is a road pass on the Highlands Highway in Papua New Guinea. The pass connects the Markham Valley to the fertile Highlands region and is administratively located in the Eastern Highlands Province. It begins at the end of the Markham Valley and rises from a low altitude to around 1,500 m (4,921 ft) over approximately 10 km and finishes at the Yonki Dam.
The pass was originally constructed in the early 1950s by the Australian Administration through the Department of District Services and Native Affairs under the guidance of engineer Rupert Roelof Haviland.
