  • Journey along the Black Sea Coast

    Hopa Transportation

    I caught a bus from Trabzon to Hopa, for the 3 hour journey (165km), as I thought it might be an interesting place to visit.There appear to be buses travelling outwards every 1/2 hour according to my LP guidebook. The journey was comfortable and interesting, with views of the Black Sea, and the tea plantations of Rize.Some of the people of this...

    Hopa Transportation

    the best way to reach HOPA to land on Trabzon airport from Istanbul or Ankara then take a 3-hour bus-tripupto HOPA. Choose ULUSOY which has the best and safe bus service in the region.However I advise you to rent a car and stop at some beautiful villages on the way, smell the fresh tea, visit the tea factories.

  • Barhal monastery church/mosque.

    Barhal Things to Do

    Unsure as to why it has not been made into a museum or something as there is now a proper mosque in the village,so you probably won't be able to get inside.Built in the 10th century and later restored in the 13th this Georgian monastery church has a few interesting bits on the outside but apart from its impressiveness not much else to make it stand...

  • Karagol lake.

    Barhal Things to Do

    It's a steep hike but the reward at the end is worth it.Take the road up to nearly Nazara where they stack harvested hay,cross the small bridge,then head up,through 3 small villages.It took myself just under 3 hours with a small pack to reach it and just over 1 and a half hours back down again.Lake is icy cold and set atop a steep wall of...

    Ishan Koyu Things to Do

In fact a part of this church was used as a village mosque till a new one was built in the 80s.In the church you will find traces of blue frescoes in the dome and very interesting arcade of...

    When you are going thru to Macahel, there is a way for Karagol. It is closer to Borcka. Very nice lake and forest.
