The Barhal River is superb wilderness rafting trip that can be undertaken in two part. The upper section is grade 2-3 and the lower section is grade 4 and 5. The Barhal River is a fantastic trip no matter what option you choose. Barhal River Outdoor Centre offers adventure like you have never had it before. From water to land based activities, we provide safe and affordable, high quality outdoor pursuits, tailor-made for all age groups and levels of experience.
The Barhal (also called Altıparmak which means "six fingers") is one of the classic rivers in Eastern Turkey. Till now there are no dams in the valley although HEP projects are in planning. One can camp on the picnic site above Barhal village, or in Yusufeli, at the Greenpeace campsite (at the end of the lower section). There is plenty of pensions in Barhal village. A good choice is the Barhal Pension at the end of the middle section as you are directly at the river and you can pitch your tents there. Prices are negotiable. The access with the car (via the suspension bridge) is not for the faint-hearted!
