Karadag Mountains

The Karadag Mountains, often known as the Skopje Karadag, extend from the Kacanik Gorge, namely the Lepenc River to the west and the Koncul Gorge to the Morava e Binca River in the south-east, about 50 km long, between Anamorava. to the north, the Presevo Valley to the south-east and the Skopje Plain to the south. The relief structure is quite fragmented. This is done by the river valleys as the lower parts and the peaks of the mountains as the highest parts of the relief. New sediments in the west, mesozoic in the middle and old paleozoic in the east indicate a variety in geological construction. The flow of the rivers that gave this part a broken structure has been influenced by the formation of the relief. Descending from the high areas, they have deepened their beds and carried eroded material with them. The most important rivers of this province are: Golemareka, Letnica, Karadak, Lashtica, Pasjani, Llapushnica etc. They all spill into the Morava of Binca.
