Hasankeyf is a small beautiful city in east Turkey which won’t be visitable any more in a short time.

The history of Hasankeyf dates back to around 1.800BC with the golden age of this city believed to have been in 1232 when it was an important stop for the silk road as well as an important Islamic centre.

Since 2008, Hasankeyf has been one of the 100 most endangered sites in the world. The Ilisu Dam, a water storage with a hydroelectric powered production will flood this alley with the water of the river Tigris and this ancient city will not be accessible anymore. So hurry up and head east before it’s too late! I hope you like my impressions of this tiny old city which will soon be under water.
