And in addition to being close to nature, you get closer to the culture and history of Azerbaijan, as the road passes in the lands that have a wonderful past.
Shamakhi city is the ancient capital of the medieval Shirvanshah state. In Shamakhi guests will have an excursion to the Juma Mosque - one of the centers of Azerbaijani poetry and viticulture. Guests will find themselves in the walls of a grandiose architectural structure made according to ancient antiseismic technology. A visit to the first Muslim temple in the Caucasus, built in 743, will introduce tourists to the history of Islam in Azerbaijan and the history of the mosque itself. After that, they will go further along the road that stretches like a ribbon along the Mugan mountain Pass, classic for the Greater Caucasus, and leads to the northwest of Azerbaijan to Ismayilli.
Our next destination is the Zernava Suspension Bridge, located alongside the mesmerizing Girdiman River. Spanning an impressive distance of 74 meters, this iconic bridge serves as a vital lifeline, connecting two majestic mountains and providing the sole link to the mainland for the residents of Yukharı Zernava village. Not only is it an essential passage for locals, but it also offers an exhilarating experience for adventure-seeking tourists, igniting their senses with a rush of adrenaline. Prepare to be captivated by the scenic beauty and the incredible thrill that awaits you at the Zernava Suspension Bridge.
Lunch in the Ismailli forest. An hour break in a cozy restaurant will bring the main gastronomic notes to Baku-Gabala tour. A three-course meal will end with a tea party, and fresh air saturated with oxygen will have a beneficial effect on digestion.
Well-fed and with pleasant impressions from the first half of the tour, the guests go on. The culmination of the journey awaits them.
The city Gabala is the capital of the Gabala district. The city, which was in ancient times the capital of Caucasian Albania, and today is known as a ski resort, will welcome tourists on the territory of the most famous hotel in the region "Tufandag". Ski trails are located here and cable car lines are stretched over them, from which magnificent views of the mountains and the central part of the city open. The highest point of this exciting attraction is the peak of the Sleeping Beauty Mountain (Yatmysh Gezel), located at an altitude of about two thousand meters above the level of the world ocean.
Lake Nohur. A worthy end to the journey offered by the Baku-Gabala tour package is a stop on the shore of a colorful mountain lake. To characterize the acquaintance with him, one word is enough – pacification. Riding a catamaran on its mirrored surface or walking along its wooded shore will encourage any sad person to rethink existence and come to the conclusion that the world is really beautiful.
Half an hour later - on the way back by semi-express with a short rest in the city of Shamakhi. Returning to Baku, which has already become like a native, to which you return as to your home, realizing that you have fallen in love with Azerbaijan and there is no end to this love.
