Photographer's Note

On the way to the top of this part of the Kaçkar montain, in the northeast of Turkey, we had to pass through the snow. The rigourous winter, brought a late spring with a lot of ice and snow that didn`t melt yet.
The top is above 3930m altitude and the climbing was very hard, with lots of stone obstacals besides the ice, the snow and the lack of oxigen (above 3700m). We left from the Dilber Duzu camping (3328m) at 6:00 in the morning and arrived 12 hours later, exausted, but the scenery was unbelievable gorgeous and worth the effort.
