The Kelkit River is a river in the Black Sea Region of Turkey. It is the longest tributary of the Yeşil River.
It rises in Gümüşhane Province and runs through the provinces of Erzincan, Giresun, Sivas, and Tokat before flowing into the Yeşil at the modern village of Kızılçubuk, near the site of the ancient city of Eupatoria.
For about 150 km, from Suşehri to Resadiye and Niksar, the Kelkit follows the North Anatolian Fault.
In Hellenistic times, a major east-west road following the valley of the Kelkit led from Armenia Minor to Bithynia
