Turkey's Kaçkar mountains are steeped in myth and carpeted in flowers.

High-level research in Turkey

On the Black Sea coast of Turkey, the mountains sweep right down to the shore. The towns may have been spoilt by shoddy development – even fabled Trebizond, now known as Trabzon – but the mountains rise pristine and luxuriant towards the cloud that frequently covers their peaks. Here, between Trabzon and the Georgian border, lies the massif of the Kaçkar. Hazel orchards and the close-picked bushes of tea plantations cover the lower slopes. Higher up, unbroken forest clothes the ravines. Streams and waterfalls abound. Ferns and rhododendrons thrive in the moist air. So does the Pontic azalea, whose honey reputedly drives men mad.

What a great link and perfect timing for our upcoming trip. We had heard from Kate Clow about her new book and are looking forward to going to this area in May/June.

Take a look at my photos, I was in the mountains last August! I have written an essay, but I still haven't had time to complete and proof read properly to add it, and beside it would take a long time to read!
