Mala Kapela (pronounced [mâːlaː kǎpɛla], Small Chapel) is a mountain in Croatia, part of the Dinaric Alps. It stretches in the direction northwest-southeast, and it extends from the mountain pass called "Kapela" or "Vrh Kapele" (alt. 887 m)[1] that separates it from Velika Kapela, down to the mountain pass that connects Otočac and Plitvice and from then on to Plješevica. The highest peak is Seliški vrh at 1279 meters, located in the southern part of the mountain.[1]

The Mala Kapela Tunnel goes through the northern section of the mountain.
