Turkey Things to Do: 1,137 reviews and 1,882 photos


Atatürk Dam is one of the largest dams in the world. The run-off from the hugh reservior that's been created generates a lot of enery and several irrigation tunnels distributes water for the plains to the south.
I went on a tour from Sanliurfa to Nemrut Dagi. On the way we stopped at the dam and then we drove down to the Euphrates river, for the brave ones to take a dip. The water was surprisingly cold. My feet became numb after just a few seconds. It was really freeeezing!
