The top of the mountain is accessable by car & its the highest point in the south of Duhok city where the whole city & the great lake of Mosul dam can be seen. Cafes & fast food restaurants are available. Hiking to some historical ruins is another option there.

This is top of mountain that you can go there by your own car or taxi, it is beautiful place, with some restaurant in summer time, but is better to take your things with you if you will go there like chairs food or drinks, You will like the view of Duhok city and Mountains around.

the road to Zawa mountain is as much beautiful as the view from up there. The high mountains and valley extend endlessly in a very sereine way. The tops are all covered with snow but yet a warm sunshine welcomes you to enjoy the stay. on the way we stopped by the amazing Amediye village and I wonder why it doesn't figure on the attractions of Duhok city on tripadvisor. I really recommend Amediye for anyone visiting Iraqi Kurdistan and of course Zawa mountain!

I am highly amazed that the real resorts and attractions of duhok are not existed here . however, zawa mountain is a beautiful mountain surrounding the city of duhok from the south.but if you drive by the highway just 70 km from duhok city to all the attractions along the road until you reach amedi village ,you will be amazed.the road surrounded by high green mountains in the summer,but if you go in the months of winter, you will notice that the mountains are covered with snow.first of all , you will reach zawita village after 12 km from duhok,it is a nice village in the mountains wth small markets and it is renowned with its iraqi fish restaurants.then the driving continues steeply up till you reach swaratuka resort with its touristic houses for rent as a resort.then you will reach ashawa waterfall near sarsank resort,very nice little waterfall.when you are near your final destination after 50 km from duhok city,you should stop at enishki cave.it is a moderate size cave with dripping water from the top of it formimg a small basin of water in the middle of it.the following destination will be sulav village with its little waterfall and little market.from sulav area you could see amedi village because it is very near to it but a little lower than amedi.drive to amedi which is a circular shaped little village built on the top of the mountain. the elevation of amedi from sea level is 1200 m.the view of its valley is just fantastic.then you could go back to sulav to have some rest and ate a meal in its reastaurants before heading steeply down to duhok again.when you go down to duhok, you could notice that the road is steep and smooth enough to be at 120 km/h without puting your leg on gas pedal of the car.north of iraq is fantastic

You will enjoy to see the Duhok from this mountain, which is very near and you can get there easily and fast. You will enjoy beautiful way up to the mountain. It is very special during sunset with lots of nice colors. There is veyr nice view of great lake of Mosul dam. Hot drinks and some snacks are available.

This is a great place to go for a view over Duhok as well as the countryside south of Duhok. There are many little tea stalls that offer some snacks too (outside seating).
