Pirja’s majestic peaks are snowcapped year round

By Mohammed Shwani 9/2/2019
The mountain peaks in the Pirja area of Choman hold onto their snow year round, even in summer when the rest of Kurdistan Region bakes in scorching temperatures. 

They are a tourist destination, drawing skiers in winter and people looking to cool off in summer. 

Pirja is located in Weza village, Choman, near the border with Iran. 

The area hosted a winter festival earlier this month.
