Göle (Georgian: Kola (კოლა - "k'ola")) is a district of Ardahan Province of Turkey. The centre of the district was formerly known as "Merdenik" or "Merdinik".

Göle is a rural district, 80% of the area is mountain and forest with the remainder grazing land and meadow; the local economy depends on this grazing. Göle is famous for its yellow kaşar cheese. Some crops are grown, including grains and potatoes. With the high Allahuekber mountains to the south Göle is exposed to the north; winters are eight months long and extremely cold (minus 30 Celsius is quite normal), summer is one month of dry weather.

History
