This is the Munzur River, the river of myths.  Me and my friends travelled to Dersim with a 3 am bus on the day of the Munzur Festival. Right after we entered into the city, a very famous folk song started to play on the radio. The driver raised the voice of the radio. It was a love story and the singer was praising his love by equating his love to the nature of Dersim. After a long journey, we sat by the Munzur River and had plans to go swimming. The water was inviting. Then, someone there told us that they release the city sewege water to Munzur altough there were some rebellion children.
