=== 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. The majority of truck traffic between Georgia and Turkey travels through this crossing, so it is very easy to find rides in either direction.
There are two other crossings further east. The first is from Türkgözü to the village of Vale and on to [[ Akhaltsikhe]]. The Turkish border road is large and in good condition, and the road from the border to Akhaltsikhe is smaller, but has been repaved and handles plenty of traffic.
In 2015, the border crossing between Çıldır and Kartsakhi reopened, having been closed for the previous two decades. It is
a smaller, quieter crossing and brings you out 30 kilometres from Akhalkalaki, Georgia - which is on a main trucking route to and from [[Yerevan]]. On the Turkish side, you will be 10 kilometres to Çıldır , and the road is new. From here, it is easy to get to [[Ardahan]] and onwards.
