Nemrut is technically connected to Adıyaman (near the village of Karadut in the Kahta district of Adıyaman), but you can also reach it from Malatya. The first and most important warning about climbing Mount Nemrut is to climb here either at sunrise or sunset. Because these two times of the day are the moments when the most beautiful views are experienced. As the light is more beautiful, the photos you take are better. Also, the bodies of the statues on this side, where you will be on the east terrace, are still standing. If you choose to go out at sunset, be sure to start climbing the mountain one hour before the sunset so that you don’t have to rush to the sunset If you are coming from Malatya: Do not neglect to set off 2.5-3 hours before sunrise / sunset.
