The city’s history of Rawanduz dates back to the seventh century BC and boasts several Christian villages and archaeological sites. Surrounded by majestic mountains, Rawanduz is home to the deepest gorge in the Middle East. Flanked by vertiginous rock walls, the Rawanduz River snakes its way through the canyon. The countryside is pretty dramatic, with snake-like rivers moving between the canyons. It’s a dry and dusty canyon in summer but lush and green from spring to autumn.
