After visiting Şenyuva Village and Zilkale, we visit Palovit waterfalls and historical Şenyuva Bridge which is the most famous historical stone arch bridges of Rize. After taking a lunch break at a local restaurant in Çamlıhemşin, we arrive at Ayder Plateau. You have some free time after the panoramic trip in the plateau with our vehicle.

Day 2- Sumela Monastery, Zigana, Karaca Cave and Hamsiköy Visits
After breakfast, we check-out from hotel and move to Altindere National Park and start today's tour. We give our first break at the National Park Social facilities which is 50 km away from Trabzon and 1000m above sea level. The impressive view of Sumela, built on the steep hillside of Black Mountain rising from the valley, we continue our journey through the valley after the time spent in the magnificent natural beauty of the surrounding National Park and the tranquil tone of Altındere (The Virgin Mary River). Although we can't take a full tour inside the monastery due to the restoration, we take a tour at the parts we can travel, and we get fascinated by the beauty of Sumela. We will take a souvenir photo from the View Point in front of the unique view of both the monastery and the valley. We leave the National Park and move to the Historical Zigana Pass. After having a lunch break in a local restaurant on the road, we pass through Zigana Tunnel and we arrive at Karaca Cave located in Gümüşhane province. After visiting Karaca Cave which is an art gallery with stalactites, stalagmites and travertines, we go to Torul Skywalk Terrace and then we move to Hamsiköy. Hamsiköy, which is an important stopover point of the historical (old) Zigana Road, fascinates visitors with its natural beauty and famous rice pudding. At the end of the day, we arrive in Trabzon. We arrange your transfers according to your choice of airport and we wish to meet you on another trip.
