Uzunkavak is a small mountain village southwest of Uzundere with some amazing waterfall ice climbs, as well as some potential for rock routes (so far undeveloped).

Getting There 

Head south on the highway from Uzundere for about 7 km. You'll come up to a right turn with an old faded tourism sign at it. If you're on the right road you should cross a bridge right away. As you pass through various small villages, take signs to Serdarlı. Once you reach Serdarlı, stay right and continute on this road until you reach a fork with a sign to Uzunkavak. Take this left turn, then stay on the road until you pass through Uzunkavak. It's hard to explain where exactly to stop, but the coordinates Google Maps gave me are: 40.473698, 41.235814. This is the village just past the 'officially' labeled Uzunkavak. From here you'll hike for about an hour to the waterfall. Walk southeast along the trail past houses and barns. Once you cross the little bridge you'll start heading uphill off the trail. You'll eventually come up to a bit of a plateau, giving you you first views of the falls. Stay high and left through the trees instead of heading down into the river valley, and make your way around to the waterfalls. The coordinates for the waterfalls are 40.462599, 41.241602. If you have a hard time finding your bearings in town, try asking a local "şelale nerede?" Chances are they'll remember the big group of ice climbers and be able to point you in the right direction.
