  • Halfeti is a beautiful village which got flooded after the construction of the dam. You can see some mosques and houses in the water. You definetely need to make a boat tour and eat some local fish...

  • I had a smaller boat and trip lasted as long as I wanted as not yet high season. I took this as was early so groups had not arrived yet for me to join. You can negotiate. Visited Cami Cafe 1 metre on corner of sunken mosque. All in all natural beauty and history exceeded my expectations. A wonderful day. There are also fish and other restaurants there at boarding point of boats. I caught easily from main Sanliurfa otogar the dolmus minibus to and from Halfeti 55 tkl each way.
  • A fascinating trip to a region where villages have been submerged due to the construction of a large dam. The descent is gorgeous and the scenery is beautiful. Take a small boat to see some of the ruins along the way and enjoy the old stone buildings.
  • Nice small place. I have to say it is very very touristic and sadly the boats are blasting lourd music that break a bit of the atmosphere.
  • A cute tiny town. But nothing special. I really don't think its worth the traveling just to see some old buildings under water.
  • Nice to visit.
