    Duration: 20 minutes

    Stop At: Yeddi Gumbaz Mausoleum, DNdN Qorqud St., Shamakhi 5600 Azerbaijan

    Yeddi Gumbaz, or Seven Tombs, is an atmospheric cemetery on the outskirts of the Azerbaijani town of Shamakhi. You wouldn't know it from walking around, but Shamakhi is one of the oldest towns in Azerbaijan, its foundations go back to the fourth century B.C. Earthquakes over the centuries have razed the town and it has been re-built several times.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Ismayilli asma korpu, Ismailli 3100, Azerbaijan

    It is a suspended bridge that everyone stops to see and walk on. The thing is that the Gird­manchay, which is flowing fast through the valley, is very dangerous. In spring and autumn, the river bursts its banks, making a lot of noise. Every time it ra­ins, the river bursts its banks, destroying everything in its way. No bridge can withstand the power of the river, and the only way out is a suspension bridge. This iron suspension bridge was built high on the river after the river dest­royed hundreds of regular bridges. It is very good for thrill-seekers.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Lahij, Azerbaijan

    It is a village 180 km north-west of Baku, and 37 km east of the district center. La­hij is located on a slope of the Great Ca­ucasus Ridge, on the left bank of Gird­manchay 1,100-1,200 meters above sea level. There are the Govdagh (2,437 m) and Niyaldag (2,322 m) ranges nearby. The Lahij pass is at the crossroads of great Niyaldagh range. It is 1,700 meters high and is narrow and difficult to pass. The roads are open to traffic throughout the year although they can be dangero­us. Lahij, which is located behind seven mountains, has one particularity typical of all Eastern towns.
