Soganli Geçidi

Soganli Geçidi

Soganli Geçidi is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.330m (7,644ft) above the sea level, located in Bayburt Province, in northeast Turkey.

The road to the summit is the infamous Bayburt Of Yolu-D915. It’s one of the most dangerous roads on Earth. It’s gravel, narrow, with severe drops. This road tests the skill, and courage, of any driver. It’s definitely not for anyone suffering from vertigo or a fear of landslides. Only the suicidal, the insane, or the paid-to-do-this should ever drive down. One mistake and it's a free fall to your death. It’s usually impassable in winters. Expect snow in June and fog anytime.
