Starting at either Rawanduz or Erbil, the drive approaching the resort is spectacular. The descent of the mountain ranges lead into a breath taking landscape or canyons, high mountain streams and beautifully eroded valleys. Geli Ali Beg waterfall features the highest waterfall in the country. Bordered by the Korek and Bradost mountain ranges, the waterfall is considered as one of the most beautiful sites in Kurdistan. Surrounded by a mini market and terraced cafes, Geli Ali Beg displays a great location to enjoy a scenic retreat. There are also small row boats for hire allowing visitors to get very close to the waterfall.
