  • This waterfall, while picturesque, deserves especially a short stop along a route of the Hamilton road soon 100 years ago by a New Zealand engineer between Irbil and the Iranian border and which counts some landscapes among the most fascinating world, e.g. the gorges of Rowanduz.

Where to stay in Erbil

Running out from the central citadel in concentric circles, the city of Erbil offers a good set of accommodations. As a rule, the farther from the center you get (while still within the city proper), the newer the buildings and the more luxurious the hotels. If you're a real fan of luxury, look to the west of the city center, where impressive modern hotels overlook Sami Abdulrahman Park. If you're looking for something suited to tighter budgets, consider guesthouses and simple, older hotels.
