The King of Commagene with the awesome name of Antiochus I Theos Dikaios Epiphanes Philorhomaios Philhellen ruled the area from 70 BCE-38BCE. On his death, he had constructed a huge artifical tumulus and tomb on top of one of the highest peaks in the kingdom, visible for miles around. Seated around his tomb are the massive statues of the gods,... More

The site is very imposing and the view amazing. One of my favourite sites in all of Turkey. Depending on the route you take and the weather (we had thunderstorms) the road can be a bit tricky. On the way back to Adıyaman make sure to stop in at kahta kalesi and kara kuş.

First, if you are going to Nemrut Dagi by self driving, DO NOT follow the road sign. We distrusted our trustworthy TOMTOM and follow the road sign. Only to find out we were directed to the "professional way" up the hill. So if you are driving in some of the most dangerous unpaved road, you may consider to turn back... More

It's not easy getting there, but Mt. Nemrut, with its Nemrut Dag UNESCO World Heritage Site is a stunning archeology site. You won't believe that a king in the 1st century BC had the resources to take the top off this mountain, chip it into small stones for his burial mound, then erect colossal stone statues of himself and his...

Fantastic site. Amazing ! Make sure that you go there for the sunset AND for the sunrise. The colors and the ambiance are very different. Magic.

fantastic place - we went there for sunset at the end of july : the negative aspect is that there were many children screaming , which spoiled a little the magic atmosphere - maybe an extra visit at sunrise would be better -you don't need trekking shoes like i was wearing but a good pair of hiking shoes. - a...

Nemrud is the memorial of King Antiochos, who ruled the Kommagene empire in the first age before Christ. The construction of the Nemrud mountain top, prevents grave ever still, to reach the inside. Great engineering, how creative! If you want to visit Nemrud, my tip is to visit Arsameia, Gerger Kalesi and Karakus. All these sites have narrow relationships with... More

Awesome experience to see the sunrise and sunset from this area. (Tickets are valid for one day so you can return at no additional cost apart from driving up the mountain.) Quite surreal to be up there with the statues - quite the link to the distant past. One of my favourite locations I've ever visited, anywhere. The road up... More
