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

Mountain of Gods in Adiyaman city. About 2500 m height nemrut mountain. Commagene, a kingdom founded north of Syria and the Euphrates after the breakup of Alexander's empire, is one of the most ambitious constructions of the Hellenistic period. The syncretism of its pantheon, and the lineage of its kings, which can be traced back through two sets of legends,... 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.

I was traveling in south east Anatolia and Nemrut was maybe the best part of it ! Also if you have time go around Nemrut Dağı, there are many hitoricals places to see (Roman bridge, Arsameia..)

Nemrut is a 2,134-metre-high mountain in southeastern Turkey, notable for the summit where a number of large statues are erected around what is assumed to be a royal tomb from the 1st century BC. It is easy to reach by taking stairs. It has really excellent statues and view.

Not bad, should be visit but it is not impressive for me like Bergama (Pargemon). Very small mountain, limited activities.

I have traveled to most of the significant sites (and many insignificant) in Turkey and this was on of my favorite. It is a long way from anywhere, but worth the trek. The pansiyons in the area are not the greatest, but fine. Of course the sunrise is the main attraction, but a daytime visit is excellent as well, and... More
