Introducing Southern Azerbaijan
Southern Azerbaijan’s coastal strip is the lush breadbasket of the country, where tea plantations line the roadsides and trees are heavy with citrus fruit. Inland, bucolic forested mountains offer tempting streamside getaways and plenty of hiking potential. The area is home to the hospitable Talysh people, famed for living to great ages. Using the overnight train to Lənkəran, a trip to the south makes an easy escape from Baku or a pleasant stop en route to Iran.
