Welcome to Quba to Xınalıq
The fabled ancient village of Xınalıq is an unforgettable rustic getaway but the beautiful route from Quba is an attraction in itself. The road starts out through woodlands past a string of barbecue cafes, then navigates several canyons before emerging above the treeline into an almost deserted upland valley. Traffic is very light, except perhaps on midsummer weekends, making the road's western section viable as a safe, easy hiking route.
Cavid Qara's Camping Azerbaijan offers regular weekend trips and tailormade hikes in this region often including homestays in remote, little-visited villages like Qriz.
