Earth : Europe : Turkey : Black Sea Turkey : Eastern Karadeniz : Ayder
Walk till your heart's content or take a Dolmush back to Chamlihemshin (to get cash or get into another valley) or Pazar.
It's a nice trek upto Yukarı Kavron, mountain pastures higher in the valley, towards the Kackar peak. However, there are far too many vehicles duing the summer. It'a better idea to take the Dolmush, from the center of Ayder, and start your trek from Kavron.
Beautiful mountain scenery and maybe Hemshin people dancing and playing a peculiar sounding bagpipe.
You could do a lot worse than stay at Zirve Ahsap pansiyon. A Chalet-type pension catering largely for families but also quite suitable for others. It's behind the buildings north of the Dolmush stop in Ayder; Head up the mountainside left from the baker's, Take the path parallel to the main road. It's behind a gaudy concrete building and a water trough.
The cost ran at about 20 YTL per person per night (aug 2007) The telephone number is 0464 6572177
Take the dolmush to Pazar and from there a bus to Trabzon or Rize
