Kurdistan was a mystery to me. Visiting this place I was definitely surprised with its nature, welcoming people EVERYWHERE, and all the historical sights waiting to be discovered by visitors.
Korek Mountains can be seen when you take a road trip towards the Hamilton Road in Kurdistan.
The citadel was about 10 - 15 minutes walk from the hotel so I made sure to come here for some street food and souvenir shopping.
Erbil is pretty amazing. I had such a wonderful experience checking out its sight, nature, and of course the local food scene!
Lalish Temple is the holiest place for the Yazidi people. Make sure to have a local guide with you when visiting this holy place.
Shekan is where the Lalish temple is located which is North of Iraq.
