I was glad to meet so much hospitable people in Sheki, Gabala, Ganja, we travelled with our private transfer car and the guide, who was better than wikipedia) Me and friends of mine had a great time traveling to one of the great Lakes of the region, through the colorful cities and villages, which is called Bluelake, where we could observe all the nature beauties located in one zone. Our guide told us how the lake was formed after enormous earthquake several centuries ago, many interesting stories made the tours unforgettable. Will come again, with my family.
