Uzungöl is a high mountain plateau at an elevation of 3.087m (10,127ft) above the sea level, located on the border of Trabzon and Rize provinces, in Turkey. It’s one of the highest roads of Europe.
The road to the summit is gravel, rocky, tippy and bumpy. The best time to go to Uzungol is during July-August. Be prepared for the cold and wind! High winds blow here all year long. 4x4 vehicle required. Expect a trail pretty steep. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with dangerous dropoffs. Extremely low oxygen for engine combustion. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.
