Duzdagexperience the power of nature

Salt therapies are offered in health resorts all over Azerbaijan, but for the most authentic experience head to Duzdag, 12 kilometres from Nakhchivan City. Duzdag or ‘Salt Mountain’ is a former salt mine whose underground tunnels have been converted into a leading salt therapy centre serviced by a wonderful team of physicians and physiotherapists. The mountain is thought to contain some 130 million tons of pure natural salt, which is prized for its ability to cure respiratory illnesses. For the full experience, soak up the salt and silence while spending the night in one of the centre’s underground caverns. An affiliated above-ground well-equipped resort is located 2 kilometres away.
