Although this is a touristic site, not many people visit the area and tourists are mostly concentrated around the tomb and statues, leaving a vast area just for you as a birdwatcher.
As the area is located in Kurdish area of Turkey, visiters should inform themselves about the current political situation before trying to visit the area.
Actually the whole area is good for birding and allows for a multiple day binding survey of the surroundings
