Thirty kilometres from the city of Goygol, visit the Goygol National Park for its stunning, crystal-clear lakes, the largest of which is Lake Goygol.  Sitting 1,500 metres above sea level surrounded by lush forests in the Lesser Caucasus Mountains, many consider Goygol (meaning Blue Lake) to be Azerbaijan’s most beautiful lake. It formed after an earthquake in 1139 sent rocks tumbling from the peak of Mount Kapaz, which towers above adding drama to the wonderful scenery. Given its beauty, Lake Goygol has long been a source of inspiration for Azerbaijani artists, musicians and writers, including the great Nizami Ganjavi who lived in the region in the 12th century.
