What to ExpectItinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Besh Barmag Mountain, Azerbaijan
The word "beshbarmag" from Azerbaijan is translated as "five fingers", since the outlines of the mountain resemble five fingers.
The Beshbarmag is visible in the drawing of Georg Hohenfelden 1850
The mountain, due to its height and shape, from time immemorial has been an excellent reference point for sailors. Behind the mountain are the ruins of the ancient city of Hursangal

Stop At: Qechresh, Azerbaijan
The forest of Qachrash is one of the most picturesque and lively corners of Guba. The peculiarity of this area is given by the mysterious forest through which the road to Qachrash passes. It seems that the rays of the sun never penetrate this dense forest. In the magical forest, as in childhood, “the trees are so big” that the crown is not visible. Even in the most unbearable summer heat, it is always cool here – mountain streams of the bubbling Gudyalchay River with a roar go down and amaze with their grandeur.
You'll get the chance to take some unique pictures in the middle of nature.
