Nemrut Dağı

Alexandra Pucherelli
Many of you know that I am a sunset junkie! I also love sunrises but let’s face it even though I am a morning person I rarely make it out of bed in time to see sunrise. Yet when I heard about Mt. Nemrut I knew I had to make this early morning journey. One of my favorite things to do on Maui is to watch the sunrise from the top of Haleakala so I had an idea of what a sunrise from the top of this mountain would look like. The thing that sets Nemrut Dagi apart from most other mountains in the world are the giant statues that sit at the top. Nemrut Dagi is one of the most stunning historical monuments in the country. The massive idols date back to the first century BC and have been watching the sunrise over Turkey ever since.
