More than 100 hairpin turns on the road to Mount Sinjar
Mount Sinjar is a mountain peak at an elevation of 1.319m (4,327ft) above the sea level, located in the Nineveh Governorate of Iraq.
Set high on the northwestern part of the country, the road to the summit, known as Sinjar Mountain Road, is entirely paved. It’s an extremely defiant drive, with around 100 hairpin turns, and narrow and steep parts.
The road to the summit, the place where Noah's Ark settled after the biblical flood, is 13.5 km (8.38 miles) long starting from Sinjar, a city with the same name. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 805 m and the average gradient is 5.96%.
