Across the centuries, the northeast corner of Azerbaijan has served as the gateway between Europe and the Middle East.

Here, in the shadow of the majestic Caucasus Mountains, hides untold natural beauty.

Pristine glaciers and deep ravines, stunning mountain lakes and canyons, and an ecological treasure trove of plants and animals. This is Shahdag in all its splendour.
