Vis­it­ing Nem­rut Dağı

Timeless Travels Magazine - - TURKEY -

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!
