Mount Nemrut is a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Adiyaman province of Southeastern Turkey, featuring the temple-tomb of the famous king Antiochus, which is considered one of the finest constructions of the Hellenistic period, built in the first century BC. The burial mound is 145 metres in diameter and 50 metres high and is surrounded by statues of lions, eagles, Greek gods such as Zeus and Hercules, as well as Antiochus himself.
The highest point in the region at an altitude of 2134m, Mount Nemrut provides a spectacular viewpoint for sunrise or sunset, with the scattered heads of the statues lending a mystical essence to the scene.
Also on this tour, you will visit the old and new castles at Kahta, the Black Bird Burial Mound, which is the final resting place of Antiochus, one of Antiochus' daughters, and the old Roman bridge over the Gendere River.
