Welcome to Qax
Qax (pronounced 'gakh') has a partly Georgian-speaking population and three historic churches, one right beside the quaintly old-fashioned museum. From its gently attractive centre, the town straggles up through beautiful landscapes towards İlisu (15km north), former capital of a historic sultanate and touted, somewhat over-grandly, as a ‘mini-Switzerland’. The upper valley in between has many rural restaurants and several hotels. With a 4WD you could continue to Saribaş village but there's an unbridged river in between.
