Duhok Overview

Dohuk is the first major community one encounters when travelling from the Turkish border crossing at Habur. This city of about 130,000 is is located at the base of a rocky cliff face with a small creek running through the centre of town.

Dohuk is host to a fairly new university that provides educational facilities to students from throughout the Kurdish region of Iraq.

Although not a focus for some of the insurgency activity that occurs in other parts of Iraq, it is not unusual to see coalition military vehicles passing through the town.

In Dohuk, one can experience the friendliness and hospitality of Kurdish people.
