Macahel Pass

Macahel is one of Artvin's hidden corners of heaven. Macahel Pass is also the symbol area of ​​this point. The Macahel Pass is also known as the Little Plateau. It is located exactly on the Borcka and Camili highway. The total height of the passage is around 1830 meters. It should also be noted that this pass receives very serious rainfall during the winter months. Dealing with snow becomes almost impossible.

In very special cases, it is necessary to enter through Batumi. Macahel is not a Turkish name, as can be guessed. This situation also increases the mystery of the region. Macahel is a word of Georgian origin. Macahel may be referred to as "camili" in some sources.

On the other hand, the region stands out with its rich vegetation. Its geographical features are rare. Macahel is one of six villages in Borcka district of Artvin city.
