Maku Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Maku is loacted in the west of Iran some 15km from Turkish border. There is not much to see in Maku but it is a good place to stay if you want to cross the border to Dogubeyazit in Turkey.

Maku is located in a spectacular mountain gorge and you the hills around are good frop hiking. Be careful though: you are close to the border and crossing by accident would be one of the more stupid ways to get yourself killed.

10 km to the west of town is the small Urartian citadel of Sangar. In town you can visit the Maku Palace which dates back to Ghajar period. It is presently a museum but it used to be the house of a local governor until 1974.
