The Llogara Pass (Albanian: Qafa e Llogarasë; Greek: Στενό Λογαρά) is a high mountain pass within the Ceraunian Mountains along the Albanian Riviera. It connects the Dukat Valley in the north with Himarë in the south. Orikum is the nearest city on the northern side of the pass and the village of Dhërmi in the south.

The Llogara Pass is also part of the Llogara National Park, which spans an area of 10.1 km2 (3.9 sq mi).[2][3] In November 1912, during the Himara revolt a Greek unit was positioned on the Llogara in order to defend the region of Himara from Ottoman-Albanian attacks from the direction of Vlorë.[4]
