The Akhalkalaki border crossing connects Georgia and Turkey in the countryside. It is less than 35 km from Ardahan in Turkey, and 30 kilometres from Akhalkalaki in Georgia. Walking across this border is allowed. This border was fully refurbished and then reopened in 2015 after two decades of closure.
The border is not next to any big settlements and is beautifully located on the shores of Kartsakhi Lake. New roads have been built on either side of the border, so you can walk a few metres away from the border buildings in either direction and find a ride. There is a regular flow of traffic including a lot of long-distance trucks. Finding a ride is easy
