Are You ready for the Cappadocia & Mount Nemrut Trekking Tour challenge?

Cappadocia & Mount Nemrut Trekking Tour. It is a significant attraction. Nemrut Dağ or Mount Nemrut, was built in the Hellenistic period when kingdoms were formed in Eastern provinces, after Alexander the Great’s empire was collapsing. This striking location was the house and tomb of the gods, built by the Hellenistic King Antiochos I of Commagene (69-34 B.C.) as a monument to himself. The Hierotheseion of Antiochos I is one of the most ambitious creations of that period. At the top of Mount Nemrut, King Antiochus I Theos of Commagene built his tomb-sanctuary along with huge statues (8-9 meters high). Visit the Commagene Kingdom with its sunrise and sunset to see the monumental stones in the best possible light. It has been designated a World Cultural Heritage site by UNESCO, and is one of the most important National Parks in the country.
