Picnicking in Shaqlawa you may well lose your breath from the breath taking views of Kurdistan’s beautiful natural landscapes, situated north of Safin Mountain. Almost a kilometre above sea level Shaqlawa is particularly popular during the summer season due to its much cooler climate. The culturally rich local community and cultural sites around the area add to the resort’s appeal. You can pack for picnics from the fresh local produce, including bread, sweet pastries, fruit, vegetable and as well a selection of local and imported drinks. For those preferring to retreat to local cafes or restaurants, Shaqlawa offers an abundance of quality choices.
