The north-west at its best

Multicultural Gakh in north-west Azerbaijan is scattered with the relics of ancient churches and towers. Enjoy wandering around the charming city centre and discovering some culinary curiosities. Definitely visit the quaint village of Ilisu which was once its very own tiny sultanate, and from there you can hike to photogenic ramparts, amazing viewpoints and spectacular waterfalls.
