  • nice view to the sea. On the otherside if you do not come at the right time you will see only birds. The road to get there is not suited for normal cars but for bikes, walking or motorbikes it is ok. You can get inside of the National Park with your car.
  • The Absheron National Park is a monument dedicated to Absheron peninsula. The fact that it locates at the horn of the Absheron peninsula, it draws thrilling attention of adventurers. There is no better illustration that you can see how Absheron and Baku suburb was like centuries ago. So it is easternmost point of Azerbaijan too. The narrow land form that goes into the sea is called “Shah Dili” (Spit of the King). It is the farthest land part of Azerbaijan in the east that you put the foot on the ground. Perhaps, this is the only reason you might want to go there. The park is 8km long from one end to another and it offers long walk under the sun like hell fire.
