Plane Tree

Georgia, Armenia & Azerbaijan

Just before the village of Karmir Shuka (also known as Krasny Bazar) if you're coming from Stepanakert, follow the signs uphill to the home of a 2000-year-old platan (plane) tree so large you could hold a party inside its core. Locals love to come here for picnics, in the shade of the trees and amid the chorus of the cicadas.
