Çam Geçidi

Take the Scenic Route and Discover Çam Geçidi

Cam Pass (Cam Geçidi) is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.466m (8,090ft) above the sea level, located on the boundary between Artvin and Ardahan provinces, in the Black Sea region of Turkey. 

Set high at the far eastern end of Turkey, the road to the summit is totally paved. It’s called D010. The pass is 31.4 km (19.51 miles) long, running west-east from Yavuzköy (Artvin Province) to Sulakyurt (Ardahan Province).

The road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 14% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. If you've got your own vehicle, it's worth stopping for the views. It is difficult to keep the pass open to traffic during the winters because of the harsh weather conditions due to high altitude.
