Mount Nemrut

Reviewed By Rod F - Royal Wootton Bassett, United Kingdom

This was my second visit ti Nemrut Dag - I had visited to see the sunrise in 2009, but I wanted to see the sunset too! Firstly, however hot it is during the day, it gets very cool on the mountain in the evening, so be prepared. I think that there were many more people on the site in the evening visit than the morning visit If you particularly want to photograph the monuments, the morning may be the better bet. My only disappointment was that the famous Lion Horoscope relief has still not been restored. I should say that the roads up to the site have been vastly improved on 2009.

Severan Bridge

Reviewed By JuergenWDobler - Birkirkara

Coming from Kahta this bridge would probably be your second stop after Karakus Tumulus. The bridge is impressive in size and well restored. Of the four pillars, two at either end, three remain having ancient inscriptions. If the weather is good and you are enroute to Nemrut Dagi plan some time to have a swim in the relatively fast flowing waters of the river the bridge crosses.

Not much excavations done yet, still one can easily guess how large the settlement was once. There are interesting graves, if you have time in Adiyaman I can recommend to go and see this site

Su Gozu

Reviewed By Anıl Z - Istanbul, Turkey

Besni ilçesine bağlı olan yer özel arabanızla Besni merkeze 10 dakika mesafede kalıyor. Kayalıkların arasından giden yoldan arabayla aşağıya doğru iniyorsunuz ve karşısınıza bir doğa güzelliği çıkıyor. Suyu berrak ve yeşillik içinde insanı rahatlatıyor. Birkaç genç suda yüzüyordu bunlar yüzünden kirlenmeye başlamış olan bu yer genelde haftasonları piknik için kullanılıyor sanırım.

Adiyaman Museum

Reviewed By tanookisuit - Winter Park, Florida

If you're already in Adiyaman, you may as well go. Nothing too amazing or spectacular, unless you really like looking at pots and coins, but the best part is you can pick up a free Adiyaman phamplet guide to Nemrut that was pretty interesting and informative for when you take the trek up the mountain.
