Korek Mountain, Erbil
(4.3/5 based on 35 reviews on the web)
With 60 to 100 days of snowfall between December and March, Korek Mountain delights winter sport fans, but also remains a year-round destination for outdoor adventures. Ride the scenic cable car to the top, and then, depending on the season, ski, snowboard, or hike your way down one of Iraq's highest peaks. The summit has several restaurants serving up tasty Kurdish food. Alternatively, order a coffee and simply appreciate the views, which extend all the way to Iran and Turkey's Northern Kurdistan on a clear day. If you want to extend your stay, check out the sophisticated accommodation options. Put Korek Mountain into our Erbil tour planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Erbil.
