It's going great Agirabi, what a scenary...wow.

What would be the best season to motorcycling this part of the country?

I've been there once, in 1972 and still craving to go back, well, after thirtysome years. Actually maybe it's just me, or pretty general feeling to all travellers for all interesting parts of the world.

Thanks for sharing this. It looks like a great ride. You are lucky to have so many great dirt roads. Is there much traffic at all. How about coming through the caves? I'd hate to meet a truck coming the other way.

Our Eastern Blacksea and East Travel

Day 5 & 6



Yes after a nice, enjoyable chat and a good sleep we got up early and decided to roam pastures of Elevit and Polavit. We got started at about 07.15 in the morning.





An upper view to the hovels on the plateau.We have already passed over 1500 meters..



We found a small creek and decided to have some fun

















I couldn`t stand and crossed over several times but on the last round I had to stop in the middle by stucking on a rock that I couldn`t get down by using the pedestal just because it was just broken off on the road uphill. Thanks to Cem, he came for help and said: -Call me big brother call me big brother...Tell me did I ever fall down before?


me;
-
-Brother, dear brother..did you fall down?..No it was me..it`s me who always fall down.
After showing a good solidarity we managed to brought my black devil out of where it stuck into





An upper view of the plateau.






This picture was taken at 2220 meters and it`s probably one of the most beautiful photos of our travel..thank you Ozan, my companion.




we are on the highest place of Elevit plateau.It is exactly 2727 meters high







Time is running up and it`s about noon.We don`t have much time to visit Polavit so we ride back to our motel.




After a delicious braekfast we say goodbye to our nice motel and the nice folk there and continue our journey.



On the road back we stop for a little break in Zilkale, the place where we couldn`t have the chance to travel due to lack of time the day before.








will continiue...
