=== Turkey ===
When arriving from the west, your likely point of entry to the country will be [[Sarp-Sarpi border crossing]] with [[Turkey]] on the Black Sea coast. That border crossing has steady traffic and it's possible to cross the border on foot.
is another crossing a bit further east , from Türkgözü to the village of Vale and on to [[Akhaltsikhe]]. Although the Turkish border road is large and in good quality, the road from the border to Akhaltsikhe is a really bad dirt road. This crossing is not recommended unless you prefer more of an adventure, but the police there are very friendly and will help you get a ride or find a place to stay if it's getting late.
