At the meeting point of the Eastern and Western civilisations, Mount Nemrut is one of the most mysterious sites in Turkey. A collection of colossal statues on a remote mountain 2150 metres high, adorning the temple and tomb of King Antiochus is a sight both breathtaking and astonishing.
Mount Nemrut has become the most significant attraction in Eastern Turkey, with thousands of visitors trying to see the statues in the best possible light, either at sunrise or sunset. It has been designated a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO, and is one of the most important National Parks in the country. In addition to the statues, the entire site includes many monuments from the Commagene civilisation, like the Eski kale (Old Castle), Yeni kale (New Castle), Karakuş Hill and Cendere Bridge. The road to the summit is only open from mid-April to mid-October because of ice and heavy snow the rest of the year.
