Bölgenin tarihini araştıran Prof A. Bryer kale ile ilgili hiçbir bilgi edinememiş ve dağlar arasındaki geçitlere egemen olan bir derebeyi tarafından yaptırılmış olabileceği görüşündedir Prof Dr. Semavi Eyice’ye göre, yöredeki derebeyi hakimiyeti Osmanlı İmparatorluğu zamanında da sürdürülmüş, asi Tuzcuoğullarının, Trabzon Valisi Hazinedaroğulu Süleyman Ağa ve devlet kuvvetleri ile çarpışmasına kadar, 1840’lı yıllara kadar kullanıldığını ileri sürmüştür

Duvarlardaki kiriş izlerinden bu mekânların ahşap döşemeli katları olduğu da anlaşılmaktadır Bu mekânın yanında muntazam dikdörtgen planlı, batı ve doğu yönüne uzanan daha küçük bir mekân vardır Bu mekânın kaleye ait bir şapel olduğu düşünülmüş ise de bunu doğrulayacak bir kanıta rastlanmamıştır Ayrıca bir şapelde bulunması gereken apsis ise burada yoktur Yalnızca kapı girişinin karşısında, batıda içerisi nişli bir girintili hücre bulunmaktadır

Kalenin güney ucu duvarla çevrili bir iç kale görünümündedir Bunun batısında dışarıya doğru taşan dikdörtgen burcun başkule olduğu sanılmaktadır Bu kulenin de düzgün bir planı yoktur Ancak bütün kaleye ve çevreye hâkim bir durumdadır Duvarları 1-5-2 m kalınlığındaki başkulenin zemin katından başka, ahşap döşemeli dört katı daha bulunmaktadır Kalenin aydınlatılmazı mazgal delikleri ile yapılmıştır Ayrıca kulenin üzeri teras şeklinde örtülmüştür

İç kaleden başka dış surlar ve orta surlar kaleyi çevrelemektedir Kale duvarları içerisinde dikine uzanan boru yuvalarının da günümüze gelemeyen sarnıçlara ait oldukları sanılmaktadır.

Castle Plateau

Kale Yaylası

Castle Plateau

Rize province is the last village of Çamlıhemşin, which is 40 km away from the accident and has an altitude of 2800 s. The castle village, located at the point of storm, It is a historic village built on the outskirts of Tatos mountain, forming part of Kacharkar. Erzurum İspir and Artvin Yusufeli had the property of being one of the places where cargo passengers in the past had passed through, as a gateway to the passage.

The name of Kale-i bala was changed to Hisarcık in the Republican years and after this name was mentioned for many years, it was renamed Kale village again and got a name of küya this day. Village settlement is scattered; a few hamlets and neighborhoods. It is used as a barracks and a Kala hamlet; It is used as a boulevard, flower, plateau, middle ridge and head meadow plateau. In these sections used as plateaus; Especially, the middle ridge and the head meadow are the highland houses of the people coming from the neighboring villages. Since the village has intercultural interactions due to this springland characteristic, the weight of the cul-de-sac culture is also seen in the village. In the historical researches, it was determined that the village of Kale did not carry a Hamshen culture and language.

When we examine the structural characteristics of houses in the village; We see that there are roofs of earth covering the black stone walls. The houses consist of a section where the tandır and the castle are located and the second section called Maran. Marine; bed and cellar room, as well as vartivordan and then the area where the grasses were placed.

Besides these black stone and earthy houses; it is also possible to find the houses of the 'keran' lined up. Keran: He called for decent trees of 10-15 meters in length and of considerable thickness. These buildings, which are now museums, left their place in the walls where piri ket stones were walls and roofs were covered with hair. For the sake of speculation, the astonishing door and window stones in the buildings and the huge stones can be brought to this condition under primitive conditions. For that reason, the photographs of these old houses are tabled for almost every tourist.

It is possible to see the soil covered with "warp" beside the dam. Harthouming: It was a fine corrugated board made of a skillfully splitting of specially selected pine logs.

Priority was farming and livestock farming. Wheat farming, wheat barley and wheat were harvested, but these crops were not properly grown or seedless, even if they were later climatic changes. In livestock farming, 10-15 large animals in every house and small animals in hundreds of small animals were nourished and fed. These days, only the hobbies made by the highlands are very talented in terms of ekenomic returns.

Despite the fact that no one can survive the winters today in the village, which is located in the foothills of the mountain, The winters are a cheerful village. Due to their geographical structure and economic structure, the peasants have been busy migrants because they have found a way to survive better and have found a way to survive. By taking land on the beach in the first place; They started to gather in different villages and neighborhoods in the market. migrating from here to big cities; They have started to work in various jobs and professions, or have established their own businesses.

In our villages with large cities, Due to the availability of economic and social conditions, there has been a large increase in literacy rates. Literary authors who have been shown with their fingers have now become people who are known by their proliferating professions.

In the meantime, to put it in detail: Those who migrated from the castle village to the pazara; They are in the market Abdoğlu (write their new name), Hüdisa, Kuvakçe, Duduvat.

In the light of this general information; When we go into more detail and examine the cultural structure of the village, we see a picture of our antagonism. Those who live in the village; They were expected in the form of a few dynasties. According to their numerical crowds, Islam (separated by a few divisions), Kadiogullari (divided by a few divisions), Saints (egs) Köseler, Tonalis, etc .. As they grew in water, they began to take shape as a group of different dynasties. For example: Islam, Alikalar, Ayazlar v.s. This brought about the disintegration of family structures. At the same time, Kale village, which has a closed structure in the past, is the result of these initiations and interactions; intensive culture transfer from the villagers living. Kinship relationships have been developed with families of various cultures. (Kaleli girls first married kalalı men, Kaleli men married kalalı girls and yada cousins)

There are quite a few things to write about the physical structure of the village and its promenade locations. Firstly; Let's talk about Kale-i Baladan which gives the name of the keeper. The village was established at a point where the feud was dominant. The castle, which is claimed to be a noble watchtower, is in ruins these days and the thickness of its walls varies between 0.5 and 1.5 mt re. The height of the walls is different because it is built on a rugged land.

The mosque, which was supposed to be old with Kaley but restored several times, is also an old structure. There are graves claimed to be martyrdom near the castle. However, the graves have been excavated on the possibility of burial. After the historical documentation, the promenade locations of the Kale village are also quite extensive. At the top of the mountains there are small crater lakes. If we count it as a name; It is sandy, starred, chorus and three lakes. It is a place where the people who come to the castle want to see also the photographing enthusiasts because the whole village and the neighboring villagers can be seen from the ridge of the village, which is located at the top of the flowering highlands.

Just like the Kaleliler, which catches the "Bitter Water" sun with natural mineral water, is the first picnic area to come to mind; It is also a place where people who have eczema and disease are called to healing and washed. However, a facility for washing is not yet built and only suitable places can be washed.

It is a water with a lax water feature. This water, which is quite cold, flows even in winter. It is an interesting feature that this water can flow in the season when the buildings are frozen. We will write other cultural features, traditions and customs of the castle village in another section.

Sal Plateau

Sal Yaylası

Sal Plateau

If you follow the back of the pokut plateau, the plateau is reached. Both bowls are close together at a 15-minute walk. It seems that the Pilunçut Kahvesi seems to be waiting for the mules that will never come. The flank has a flat surrounded by houses. Most likely, this flat gave its name to the plateau.

Around this flat there are small, traditional houses of Hamsin suitable for architecture. All of the houses in Sal are wooden, while the ones built in recent years are too wooden in terms of architecture. Sal is also famous for its thirst like Pokut Plateau. It is disadvantageous that there is no river or creek beside it because it is built on the back.

The source waters are very inferior to the plateau, so it is not very useful for springing.

When you reach the area immediately above the houses, you can see "the highest" from Altıparmaklar to Kemerli and Büyük Kaçkar. It is also possible to observe the Caucasus Mountains and the Black Sea when the weather is clear. The most important feature that differentiates the ravine from other springs is that it is used by only one village.

The plateau used by Chinchiva village of Çamlıhemşin starts to fill especially from the beginning of July. Some springboards remain on the plateau until October. An advantage for Sal residents is that it is a 45-minute drive away from the villagers


Palovit Plateau

Palovit Yaylası

Palovit Plateau

The Palovit Plateau is a spring reaching down from Trovit Plateau. Meleskur Plateau is located just opposite the Palovit Plateau located 4 hours' drive away from Çamlıhemşin.

These two highlands are separated from each other by the descent from the Apevanak Plateau. The Palovit Plateau is on the side of the path leading to Samistal. It is directly opposite the arc. Palovit Plateau is a springs used by the Hemşin district, which is called Hamshen although it is on the border of Çamlıhemşin.

The Palovit and Meleskur platypuses are important springs in today's history, as they are the "point of highland" preservation of the livestock activities and as a transit point. The architectural structure of Palavit and Meleskur Plateau are examples of traditional stone work, but it is slowly losing its original character. The influence of the car drive on these two arcades was great.

The Palovit plateau is used by Çilingir, Arsavos, Sefalı villagers of Çayeli and Çaneva and Ortaköy villages of Hemşin


Amlakit Plateau

Amlakit Rize

Amlakit Plateau

As Kotençur goes to Amlakit highland, the traditional horon place of the yaylacılar passes through Pasogut Düzü. When the path is followed, the Amlakit highland, where the Palovit level is divided into two, is reached at the end of the forest.

Amlakit is celebrated with enthusiasm for Vartavor celebration. Amlakit is at the transition point to Mejo, which is known as the honey pots of Palovit Valley. With this transition, the most dangerous areas of Palovit are entered.

Plant cover can interfere with people's transportation from time to time. Although the road to Amlakit highland five years ago made it possible for more people to come to the plateau, it took a course that destroyed the ecological balance of this valley.

The Amlakit plateau is still used by Lower Vice, Hala, Habak villagers.


Elevit Plateau

Elevit Yaylası

Elevit Plateau

You can see the typical highland houses at elevation 1,800 meters. Most of the people who have migrated to the big city come to the region in the summer season for two to three months. A three hour walk can be made from the Elevit, where lodging is available, to the highland park. The Elevit plateau, which entered the process of building a large building after the 80s, is actually composed of two parts. The area known as Tafteni is the second area outside the main building (where the plate houses are located) where the largest sections of the buildings are large. is also the stop.

Although Elevit is actually known as a plateau, it is a village because it is also a mukhtar. The new name is Yaylaköy. But this new name is rarely used. It is said that there is also a market named Yok Yok which is used by Kubuve, Mollaveyis, Omokta and Golunavb villagers of the Elevit Plateau of Çamlıhemşin and has modern and modern houses as well as those who meet "Altitude: 1800, Population: Uncertain" a plateau with a dancing flare. Entertainment at the Elevit is held every year after the 15th of August. In the past, we have been in the form of grass in the past (Vartivor). But in time, this tradition left its place to more fun because of the migration of the city. Elevat is the most horon comes to mind. In the day, it is the horon tour, picnics and soccer competitions because the day is usually horon in the evening hours. There is no time restriction of the horon. It is the horon where the turkler He wants to come to the elevator. Here are the Elevit Funs ...

When we talk about Elevit, it would be wrong to cross the horon with two words. It is known that 90% of the people who come here to play horon just because of yesterday came back to the village or to the cities after they came together and played horon in the evening. horon festivals also require professionalism. Everyone here can not play horon, it attracts attention. We need to know some things. We do not have to be mistaken if we play the place after the rehearsal. It is unexpected moment in the future. If you are not a crusher, a turkey is not much important to whom you are telling. There is a brother or a bachelor here, brotherly and friendly, the folk song is played and arm coke horons are played. Horons are thus more meaningful.
