The quiet hamlet of Olgunlar (Meredet) really feels like the end of the line. Standing in splendid isolation at 2130m altitude, it's a bucolic spot with soaring peaks, soul-stirring vistas, babbling brooks and some of Turkey's purest air. Its pensions provide the closest beds to Mt Kaçkar and the Naletleme Pass (to Yukarı Kavron). Passes to the south and southwest are also accessible from here. Olgunlar is also starting to attract ski tourers in winter.
