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... More

I have seen a lot of old ruins or old cities or other relics from past civilizations, but I must say that this place is stunning. The trip to the top of the mountain by car is amazing, but the last 150 meters up the stairs is an experience on it's own. You cannot believe how many people had to... More

I went up the mountain in March 2017, in bitter cold, and since I was the only one stupid enough to go, had the magical place fully to me! Imagine, being alone to enjoy this lovely monument!

You have to climb to top of the mountain at sun rise or sun set. It can be very cold from October to May. But worth to climb and see the amazing view.

Went up to Nemrut Dagi for both Sunrise and Sunset and loved both experiences. If I had to choose 1 I would say Sunset was more spectacular and better light, but I certainly thought it was worth the effort to see both. The advantage of sunrise is that everyone left about 40mins afterwards so had the mountain to myself.

We went to see Mount Nemrut at sunset and was not disappointed. Due to troubles in Turkey not many tourists which was great for us. Walk up is relatively easy as good path with small steps nearly all the way up. The western terrace is better preserved than the eastern terrace but both are awe inspiring.

It is an amazing place to visit. We went there for a sunset Tour from Kahta. The hotel owner of kommanage wooden hotel arranged this for us. Even in july you need a sweater!!! It get's cold and windy at the top during sunset. The statues are amazing and the view is great!

I have gone there specifically to visit the nemrut mountain. I have been disappointed a little bit since the attraction was below my expectation. However, the road and surrounding areas are so magnificent. Unfortunately they are not well served by touristic services: restaurants, cafe, rest areas, etc. A visit of 1 hour is sufficient to visit and take some photos.... More

The place should be reached before sunset. You will climb for 30 minutes but after the show of history + nature will begin and it is wonderful.
