Photographer's Note

The Kackar Mountains, part of the Pontic Alps, is the glaciated, granite mountain range which hugs the south coast of the Black Sea, extending from the Caucasus towards Istanbul.The crown of the range is the Altiparmak (six fingered) and Kackar mountains, and Mount Kackar, at 3932m, is the fifth highest peak in Turkey. Best points to arrive are on the south side of the range, which is exempt from damp rolling mists which clothe the northern slopes most afternoons. The locals say that if the north face has 5 clear days in a month, it's a surprise; if the south has 5 rainy days, it's amazing.
