Location: The mountains are in the northeast of Turkey, near the Black Sea coast, around 70km east of Rize.

Transportation: The town of Camlihemsin, 16km northwest, is easily reached via Rize, Trabzon and Artvin.

Highlights: The areas around the River Firtina (Thunder) at the west of the mountains, and the River Hemsin on the east are covered with a rich range of flora. Rhododendrons grow at an altitude of 3000 metres, which is very unusual. There is also a wide variety of wildlife, with wolves, bears, pigs, wild goats, deer, jackals and wild hens. The highest peak is Kackar Dagi at 3937m
