day trip to the gorgeousIlisu waterfall

Azerbaijan is home to many wonderful waterfalls, but the 25-metre high Ilisu Waterfall (also known as Ram-rama), which shoots over a dramatic cliff face in the Caucasus Mountains is Azerbaijan’s highest waterfall and considered something of a hidden gem by locals – the mountain views from here are wonderful. Reaching it requires hiking for about an hour up a fairly steep incline, although if you don’t fancy walking villagers in Ilisu will be happy to take you up the rocky road in a 4x4. Tip: visit in winter to see it dramatically frozen over.
