Kackar Mountain, Yusufeli to Ogunlar, Turkey
The wildest part of northeastern Turkey, Kackar Mountains are known for the complexity and power of the streams and rivers which rush down to the lower altitudes. All shades of green and blue, literally hundreds of glacier lakes, immensely rich flower meadows and wildlife surprise those who imagine the country to be nothing but barren steppes. The honey from the upper grasslands and forests is enough to climb any mountain. Ideal for those who enjoy intensive trekking.
