Just one kilometer from Pavel waterfall and 57 kilometers west of Sulaimaniya is this beautiful area. The caves were the headquarters of Voice of Kurdistan radio and the Kurdish revolution in 1961. They were used again for shelter during later revolutions. It is inside a vast valley with a river flowing through, shadowed by immense trees and plants of all kinds. The Pavel waterfall can be viewed by the eastern part of the river. A resort with modern facilities has been built for tourists who visit this area.
