We drive to Lake Van, the largest lake in Turkey. On the way we stop at Muradiye waterfalls.
We visit Akdamar Island (a 15-minute sail from the shore). The island is famous for the 10th century Church of the Holy Cross.
Then, we visit Hosap Castle, a 17th century fairytale castle, 60 km from Van. On the way back, we stop at the Hittite site at Çavustepe.
We return to Van and you can enjoy the sunset at the old Van Castle.
