Mount Nemrut & Crater Lake Located in eastern Anatolia, Mount Nemrut & Crater Lake is a towering stratovolcano that is part of the region's magnificent mountain range. Despite being a dormant, active volcano, the last time it erupted was in 1441. At the top of the volcano lies the Nemrut Lake, which is situated in the crater. Other peaks in the area include Sivritepe (2935 m.), East Nemrut Hill (2625 m.), Tursuktepe (2828 m.) to the south, and Nemrut Mountain Hill (2801m) to the west. The broad basin of Mount Nemrut is a remarkable sight, with a diameter of up to 6 km and a lake on its western edge. Although it sits at a modest altitude of 2400 meters above sea level, it has a surface area of 10 km2 and a width of 2700 meters from east to west. The salty lake's waters are surprisingly sweet. The caldera has steep slopes with a height of 500 meters to 600 meters, with a base level of 2247 meters. In the eastern part of the caldera, there are Obsidian cones that were formed by eruptions after collapses, and the Göl Hill reaches a height of 3485 meters, with Ilıgöl located near the north end. The lake has a circular shape with a diameter of approximately 500 meters and a maximum depth of 10 meters. Like Lake Nemrut, it also has fresh water. Large areas at the footsides of the volcano's feetsides are occupied by lava and tuff plateaus. Mount Nemrut, located in eastern Anatolia, is a volcanic mountain featuring numerous lakes, lava outlets, and other volcanic formations within its caldera. The mountain is a dormant, active volcano, and its last eruption occurred in 1441. Its crater houses Lake Nemrut, which is crescent-shaped and covers approximately 15 km², with an elevation of 2247 meters above sea level. This is 600 meters higher than Lake Van, another large lake in the region. The volcanic material in the area includes slag, pumice, and obsidian. The rocks in the region are composed of basalt, andesite, trachyte, and other types of volcanic materials, such as ash, tuff, pumice, and ignimbrite. Within the caldera of Mount Nemrut, there are five lakes, six caves, and various volcanic formations such as lava outlets, lava funnels, and splash cones. The hot spring of Mount Nemrut, located in the crater, has a temperature of 60 degrees Celsius and is believed to cure rheumatism and skin diseases, although it currently lacks facilities for visitors.
