NEMRUT DAĞI (TATVAN)

The other Mt Nemrut

In the unfair way of things touristic it’s the Nemrut Dağı near Adıyaman - -  the one with the giant tumbled Comnenian heads on the top of it - -  that grabs all the attention while the other Nemrut Dagı, the one near Tatvan, goes virtually uncommented.

This second mountain is, however, just as wonderful albeit in a completely different way. If the Adıyaman Nemrut is a place of brown and yellow, of stone and silent history, the Tatvan Nemrut (3050m) is all cool green and blue, a place where hot and cold crater lakes compete for the attention of summer picnickers. 

A lovely, unspoilt place, it boasts stupendous views in all directions but particularly towards Lake Van.

Sleeping

There is nowhere to stay on the mountain. Nearby Tatvan has a reasonable selection of hotels.

Transport info

There is no public transport to get you up the mountain. Without a car, you will need to hire a taxi in Tatvan.
