Irak

Beschrijving

Iraq, Zagros Mountains

Iraq is a largely desert country in the west of Asia. Main geographical feature are two legendary rivers: Euphrates and Tigris, running through fertile plains across the country from northwest to southeast. Mountains are found in the north, in what is known as Iraqi Kurdistan, and in the east where the Zagros range forms the border with Iran. Iraq's highest mountain is Cheekha Dar (3628 m), in the northeast on the border with Iran, near another high peak called Kuhe Haji Ebrahim (3587 m). Both are part of the Zagros range.

At this moment Iraq is not safe as a hiking destination, for obvious reasons. Hopefully in more peaceful future times, hikers will get the opportunity to explore the mountains of Iraqi Kurdistan and the Zagros range.
