Kackar mountains or simply Kackar are a mountain range rising above along the Black Sea coast in Eastern Turkey. With highest peak Kackar Dagi.


Ayder is the place where you may start the trekking tours but make sure you get a tour guide before you do it. The most popular trekking tour starts at Yukari Kavrun and crosses the mountain to Barhal, Yusufeli (south side of the mountain) but only can be done in June-August time frame and make sure you have a tour guide to lead your way. You may get lost easily when there is a dense fog which may happen several times a day.

In winter time, people organize snow board tours when a helicopter drops them off at the summit and they ski down all the way to Ayder however, only the professional skiers can do it.
