  • By bus from Slemani

    Halabja Transportation

    Slemani is the obvious starting point for a visit to Halabja, and the distance isn't huge so you can easily make it there and back in a day, provided you start early enough. Ask your hotel owners how to get to Halabja, as buses don't leave from the main karaj, but from a smaller one some distance from the centre...we took a taxi, but found our way...

  • Walk around town

    Halabja Things to Do

    Halabja is quite a dreary town, understandable given its history, but it is a living place with a small market area and a couple of parks on the outskirts. People are very friendly, but we got the feeling that they are a bit sick of visitors who come just to see the graves and the monument and don't spend any time in the town itself. Some of the...

  • The Cemetery

    Halabja Things to Do

    The other "sight" in Halabja is the town cemetery, where row upon row of white tombstones commemorate the victims who died at the scene of the attacks.

Two mass graves are also marked, each containing more than a...

  • Tea stop in Dukan

    Dokan Restaurants

    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...

  • Boattrip in the late sunlight

    Dokan Things to Do

    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...
