Overview & itinerary

This is an alternative tour from Baku to explore the hidden beauties of Azerbaijan. The Candy Cane Mountain is where  the spectacular stretch of landscape of red-pink-white striped hills are located. Despite being such a striking natural wonder, almost no one visits them. Next stop is Chiraggala: the best preserved castle of the Caspian Shore Defensive Constructions, from the 5th century. On our way back to Baku, we are going to visit the holy mountain Beshbarmag Dag to make the "dreams become true".
