Çanlıhemşin

Çamlıhemşin is a small district of Rize Province at the junction of two rushing rivers serving as a gateway to Kaçkar Mountains . It’s a very pleasant and quiet overnight stop place before climbing to Kaçkars with its amazing green scenery. You can enjoy mountain view by listening to the river flowing by. Autumn is the best period to visit the area with the foliage of green and yellow.
Çamlıhemşin itself is just a small town of 2,355 people but houses a number of places for hiking and refreshment such as Ayder, a village full of mineral baths and accomodation options and Fırtına Valley.
You can also pass by Hala River to see Stone arch bridges which has been built in Ottoman Empire Era in 19th Century and then take lunch in a local restaurant to taste a traditional meal special to Çamlıhemşin -  “muhlama” - a fondue-type hot cheese, butter and flıur puding.
