The Şırnak Province is a Turkish province in southeastern Anatolia. It has a population of 430,109 (2010 est). The population was 353,197 in 2000.

Şırnak Province has some mountainous regions in the west and the south, but the majority of the province consists of plateaus, resulting from the many rivers that cross it. These include the Tigris, and its tributaries Hezil and Kızılsu, and also Çağlayan. The most important mountains are the Cudi (2089 m), the Gabar, the Namaz and the Altın. In some sources, Cudi is cited as the site where Noah's Ark finally reached dry land. Şırnak is the poorest province of Turkey with an average of 508 TL per capita.
