Amadiya (Amediyah, Amadia, Amedi, al-Amadiyah), is a small town perched on a mountain north of Dohuk. It is a magical place with stunning views and is well worth a visit. There is nowhere to stay there but it works well as a day trip from Dohuk. A seat in a shared taxi from Dohuk should cost 7000 dinar.
