Nohur Lake In Gabala

Azerbaijanis a rich country, that has both cultural impacts, historically important monuments and, of course, unimaginable beauty of its landscapes. In international tourism, the landscapes of the country can be as important, if not more, as the monuments made by a human hand. And, in that regard, Azerbaijan will not disappoint as it has everything a tourist can dream of when it comes to beautiful views. Fast mountain rivers flowing between steep slopes of The Greater Caucasus, blooming flower fields and alpine meadows, Caspian sea's untamed waves crashing down on the sandy shore and unique places, as mud volcanoes in Absheron. Out of all of them, Nohur Lake surely stands out for its beauty.

Situated among the picturesque mountains that are covered in rich lush greenery of forests, it reflects on everything around as if it works as a mirror to the hills of the Greater Caucasus. Nohur Lake is a hidden gem of Gabala district, only 3 kilometers away from the region's capital, the beautiful and culturally blessed city of Gabala. One of the most fascinating traits of Nohur Lake is the peaceful aura, surrounding its clear calm waters at all times. It brings calm to every visitor, seemingly untouched by human hand or, even more so, any sort of technologies.
