The town has one street that stretches along the river which in winter becomes torrential and in summer dries to a trickle and the dark stone houses here are reminiscent of those from a 19th century English mill-town.
From the citadel, built at the top of the rocky outcrop and looms over the north-side of town, visitors are offered superb views.
There is only one hotel that is rather shabby and the restaurants serve rather insipid food although there are some cafés that have good savoury snacks. There are dolmuş minibuses running regularly during the day and main buses pass through here on-route to Van but are often full.
