Photographer's Note

Lake Van from Akdamar Island. Taken looking west towards the lookout. If you follow the paths from the tour boats there is a group of people standing on the path. Around the middle of the island there is an open gate in the tall wire fence. I went through and scrambled up the rocks to the line of trees about 2/3 of the way up the bg peak. That was far enough for me. After that the rocks were becoming increasingly steep. Turning around from up there will give you a tremendous view all the way to the eastern shores of the lake and including the old 10th century Armenian Church. Time it right in April May and you get the flowering cherry blossom trees as well.
