tea and citrus plantation toursin Lankaran
Lankaran’s warm, subtropical climate is perfect for growing citrus fruits. If you’re lucky enough to visit the region during early autumn, you’ll be able to glimpse colourful village orchards overflowing with mandarins, lemons and kumquats. Historically known for its rice plantations, tea growing also began to blossom here in the 1930s and quickly developed into a symbol of Lankaran – look out for the giant samovar monument that greets visitors upon entering the city! Tours are available of local tea and citrus plantations and can be booked through private guides or the Lankaran Destination Management Office. The annual Tea, Rice and Citrus Fruits Festival will also you a taste of the region’s signature produce and takes place in autumn.
