Mazi Plus Mall

Reviewed By Salar O - Duhok, Iraq

From the size point of view, this is the second mall in Duhok. If you don't like to go to traditional markets or other shops where you can bargain and negotiate prices then this the right place. In addition, fast food restaurants and various cafés are open. So far, the only cinema in Duhok can found here with up to date movies.

Zawa Mountain

Reviewed By nezar k - Baghdad

I am highly amazed that the real resorts and attractions of duhok are not existed here . however, zawa mountain is a beautiful mountain surrounding the city of duhok from the south.but if you drive by the highway just 70 km from duhok city to all the attractions along the road until you reach amedi village ,you will be amazed.the road surrounded by high green Mountains in the summer,but if you go in the months of winter, you will notice that the Mountains are covered with snow.first of all , you will reach zawita village after 12 km from duhok,it is a nice village in the Mountains wth small markets and it is renowned with its iraqi fish restaurants.then the driving continues steeply up till you reach swaratuka resort with its touristic houses for rent as a resort.then you will reach ashawa waterfall near sarsank resort,very nice little waterfall.when you are near your final destination after 50 km from duhok city,you should stop at enishki cave.it is a moderate size cave with dripping water from the top of it formimg a small basin of water in the middle of it.the following destination will be sulav village with its little waterfall and little market.from sulav area you could see amedi village because it is very near to it but a little lower than amedi.drive to amedi which is a circular shaped little village built on the top of the mountain. the elevation of amedi from sea level is 1200 m.the view of its valley is just fantastic.then you could go back to sulav to have some rest and ate a meal in its reastaurants before heading steeply down to duhok again.when you go down to duhok, you could notice that the road is steep and smooth enough to be at 120 km/h without puting your leg on gas pedal of the car.north of Iraq is fantastic

Azadi Panorama

Reviewed By Wasseem F - Iraq

I visited Panorama Azadi, and I couldn't find things to do there except for noticing the statue of the Kurdish couple which is a nice well done monument. I couldn't find any information about what this statue refer to or what is the story behind it, although it is a nice place from where you can see much of Duhok city.

Duhok Zoo

Reviewed By Meresanch - Prague

Very small, full of carousels and attractions for children. Visited in the late afternoon so it was overcrowded with people. Cages for animals are very small. Some animals are exposed to children directly and animals are obviously twitchy. At other day times perhaps it could be nice for relax.
