Soganli Daglari is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.092m (10,144ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Trabzon and Bayburt provinces of Turkey. It’s one of the highest roads of Europe.
Located in the Haldizen Mountains, the road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy at times. It is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). 4x4 vehicle required. Stay away if you're scared of heights. Expect a trail pretty steep. The high elevation with its risk of altitude sickness, weather concerns, steep road grade and overall inaccessibility make the travel dangerous and difficult. At the summit there’s a mountain refuge. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
