    Boattrip in the late sunlight

    by sachara Written Apr 23, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We did a boattrip at the Dukan Lake on our way to Slemani. We arrived in the late afternoon. We were lucky, because of the late sunlight our boattrip between the rocks and mountains was almost magical.

    I enjoyed the different forms of the rocks and the changing of the colours by the sunlight. The reflections in the water were wonderful too. When the boatsman turned off the motor, we were floating in a fairytale.

    Boattrip at the Dokan Lake

    by sachara Written Apr 23, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On our way to Slemani we made a stop at Dukan, a resort town on the banks of the Dukan Lake, for a boattrip at the lake. The Dukan Lake is the largest man-made lake in Iraq. The lake s a popular place for boating for the local people.

    From the town you cross the river to the north. After you go down to the lake. There are lot of boats available along the shore. A friend told me the lake was not very interesting. I don't agree, Maybe she has right when you see the lake from far. Especiallly from the water the scenery is great. I loved the boattrip. .

    Tea stop in Dukan

    by sachara Written Apr 23, 2015

    After the boattrip and before we headed to Slemani we made in Dukan a short stop just in a local shop annex teahouse south of the bridge. Just to drink a tea or another drink, to have a toilet stop and to buy fresh water before we drove to Slemani.

    A pity we had no time to eat in Dukan, because I saw a lot of fresh fish at stalls and in containers in front of the restaurants along the banks of the river.

    Favorite Dish: the local tea
