Climb Kackar Mountains

The Kaçkar Mountains are composed of several ranges lying in the north-east of Turkey, just south of the Black Sea. The many summits between 3000 and 4000m and deep forested valleys cover a vast area some of which is inaccesible on account of the deep snow between November and April.
