relaxat Lake Batabat
Nakhchivan is a region of breathtaking landscapes, home to quaint villages nestled in peaceful valleys. Driving around the autonomous republic promises endless spectacular views of dramatic mountains. However, one of the most iconic natural sights is hidden in the Shahbuz region at 2,500 metres above sea level where an enchanting floating peat island drifts mysteriously across picturesque Lake Batabat. The area’s raw beauty, especially when covered in blooming wildflowers, together with its accessibility from Nakhchivan City (located some 65 kilometres north) makes it a very popular weekend picnic spot among local Nakhchivanis.
