Ascending to the Tumulus of Antiochos, the former capital of Kommagene, we’ll await a breath-taking sunset from the summit of Nemrut.

This ancient funerary monument, concealed in time for almost two millennia, will be a remarkable backdrop as the sun descends, painting the sky in hues of serenity atop Mt. Nemrut.
