Visiting Nemrut Dağı
The Nemrut Dağı National Park can be reached by good roads either from Adıyaman via Kahta (approximately 75 km along the D360) or from Malatya (approximately 120 km along the D300). Both cities are served by daily domestic flights from both Istanbul and Ankara.
A steep, but paved road leads to a car park at the base of the summit, from which it is a 600 metre steady climb along a well-trodden path to the sanctuary.
It is best to visit the site between May and late October, (as the snow can close the road in winter) but the recommended time to visit is in July and August. Even at this time visitors are well advised to dress warmly for the final ascent, for at any time of year it can be bitterly cold and windy at the summit. Take warm clothing whatever time of year you visit!
