Weather

The best time to visit the Kurdistan Region is in the spring months of March and April. This is the time of year that the hills and plains are green from the winter rains, water flows freely in the streams and the temperature is pleasantly warm in the day and cool at night. 

October and November are also nice months for sightseeing or spending time out of doors.  Beautiful temperatures and almost constant cloudless skies make the days very pleasant even without the greenery of spring.

Summer months (May-September) are very hot and dry, especially on the Erbil Plain, often reaching temperatures as high as 50 degrees Celsius. It is slightly cooler in the evenings and in the mountainous regions around Duhok and Suleimaniah.

The winter months can be cool with rain and some snowfall in the plains and with heavy snow and ice in the mountains.
