1. Sulav, near Amedi, in winter, just above the main road. Walk all the way up, and beyond up ancient steps perhaps used by travelers on the Silk Road . Less than an hour from Duhok.






IRAK NORD 5image002

2. Could be many places. Up along the Hamilton Road somewhere? Who can locate that irrigation channel on the right.

IRAK NORD 6image003

3. Shanidar Cave, about a 2-hour drive from Erbil , where remains of Neanderthal Man were discovered during archaeological excavations in 1957-1961. It's the site of the earliest indications of humans expressing feelings, with burial rituals that included flowers - the first flower children. See Wikipedia, and the January 1996 issue of National Geographic with its cover story on Neandertals.

IRAK NORD 1image024

4. Just below Rawanduz, before going up the zig-zag (switchback). About 2 hours from Erbil .

IRAK NORD 0image023

5. Rawanduz, higher up in the background.

IRAK NORD 5image004

6. From an historical ruin on a hill across the way. Rawanduz, triangular, with deep chasms on two sides and Korek mountain on the third (back). When going up the zig-zag, on one of the left curves there is a road that goes straight and when you come to a road going to the left, take it. Go ahead a ways and stop at a sidewalk on the left where there is no railing where there should be. When the coyote chasing the roadrunner runs off the cliff, turns around, waves goodbye, and plummets into a silent puff of dust at the bottom, this is the place. Also known locally as Lover's Leap.

7. Chasm on the left side of Rawanduz.

IRAK NORD 6image005

8. Haj Omran, early 1990s, looking back from the Iraq-Iran border.

IRAK NORD 5image006

9. Warte village, in summer - stick your feet in the water and cool off.

IRAK NORD 5image008
11. Up along the Hamilton Road somewhere?
IRAK NORD 5image009
12. Sere Amedi, above Amedi. The road starts near Sulav and goes to Kani Mase, very rough in places but well worth the effort. Along the road, down on the left (going up) there is a spring with six trees. This is the place. In the "old days" the British had an military officers' hideaway up in this area. Trust the British.

13. Duhok Lake, with the dam to the right.
IRAK NORD 3image014
14. Duhok Lake
IRAK NORD 5image012
15. Along the road from Spilik, before reaching the Kahlon bridge. After the bridge, turn left towards Shanidar Cave , Rezan, Barzan. Turn right up to Bestoon Cave and over Bradost Mountain to Sardow, Sidakan, Diana-Soran.
IRAK NORD 5image011
16. From up the road to Bestoon Cave, at a pinnacle rock on the right side before going over to the other side (one of the great roads of Kurdistan ). That's the Rawanduz River , which flows into the Big Zab River through the Bekhme Dam site, which flows into the Tigris River . In other words, launch a kayak/raft here and you can go to Baghdad . Just be mindful of the dam bypass tunnel. Hang-glider and para-glider paradise.
IRAK NORD 0image036
17. Bestoon Cave . Some say it has no end. Some say.
IRAK NORD 1image015
18. Along the way to Bedial, a lone Christian village high up in the Barzan region. Very good road up to Kani Bot, then rough road to Bedial. The ancient (a thousand years?) church at Bedial, not modernized, is a treasure. Great views all along the way. On the way, lunch at pinnacle-table rock. On the way to Kani Bot, at Zrawa bridge across the RuKuchuk, excellent, somewhat secluded swimming spot above the bridge.. Below the bridge is good fishing and picnicking under the trees. (Gals up, guys down)
IRAK NORD 1image016
19. Near Dure looking down at the RuKuchuk. There's a wild, repeat wild, track down to the bottom to a big spring, Kani Chinar, with huge maple-like trees. Water is pumped up in three stages to communities up top. Good swimming and fishing in the river. Along the way, good chance of spotting wild goats with meter-long horns. Local custom does not allow hunting (nor fishing with grenades).
IRAK NORD 1image017
20. Along the road up from the Kahlon bridge to Bestoon Cave ?
IRAK NORD 1image018
21. Hmmm. Up above Sidakan somewhere?? Or near Kani Spi in the Choman area.
IRAK NORD 1image019
22. ??? Could be many places, of course.
IRAK NORD 1image020
23. Hmmm. Perhaps along the gorge from Shanidar up to Goratu? Or in Gali Zanta? On in the Chama area?
IRAK NORD 1image021
24. Along the gorge from Shanidar up to Goratu? Or in Gali Zanta? Or in the Chama area?
IRAK NORD 1image022
25. ??? Want to say Sami's Park but is that road or water? The narrow tracks might be those of two separate vehicles. Yes, it does snow in Erbil , every five years or so. Must be Sami's Park across from the Iraqi Kurdistan Parliament.
IRAK NORD 3image013
26. Ice water pond at 3,000 meters on the side of the (accepted) highest mountain in Iraq , Halgurd (3,700 meters).
IRAK NORD 1image026
27. Little stream flowing out of the ice water pond that irrigates high mountain patches of tomatoes and cucumbers during summer (available during July and August), up near where wildflower honey is produced (available in September).
IRAK NORD 0image031
28. In the area of the ice water pond?
IRAK NORD 1image027
29. Hmm???
IRAK NORD 1image028
30. Hmm. Looks familiar, but can't pinpoint it.
IRAK NORD 1image029.
31. Between Batufa and Begova?
IRAK NORD 1image030
32. Down from the bridge across the Rawanduz River in Gali Ali Beg, where the old half-tunnel Hamilton Road on the side of the gorge begins.
IRAK NORD 0image034
33. Another view of the stream that comes from the waterfalls in Gali Ali Beg, where it joins the Rawanduz River . Launch a raft/kayak here and go to Baghdad .
IRAK NORD 0image032
34.. From the end of the road at Pank Tourism Resort, looking down on Baikhal.
IRAK NORD 1image035
35. Baikhal. Ice cold water on the hottest August days.
