Çimenli Geçidi

Çimenli Geçidi, a high mountain journey in Turkey

Çimenli Geçidi is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.335m (7,660ft) above the sea level located in the Erzurum Province in the Eastern Anatolia region of Turkey. 

The road over the pass is asphalted. It’s called D955. It’s pretty steep. This road can be closed anytime when the access is not cleared of snow. 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. The road links the villages of Pasinler and Oltu.
