Azerbaijan's "northern gates" promise breathtaking Caucasus Mountain scenery, home to some of the country’s highest peaks, a classy ski resort, traditional rustic villages, and tasty Lezgi cuisine.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Gusar: Guba (Afurja Waterfall & Tengya Alty Gorge). Next up on the itinerary: walk around Nariman Narimanov Park, tee off at The National Azerbaijan Golf Club, take an in-depth tour of Mountain Jews Museum, and stroll the grounds of Guba Genocide Memorial Complex.

To find more things to do, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Gusar road trip tool.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Gusar is an approximately 25-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Amsterdam to Gusar due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Amsterdam in August, plan for much hotter days in Gusar, with highs around 39°C, while nights are somewhat warmer with lows around 20°C. On the 10th (Mon), you'll travel to Khinalig.

This picturesque village is located at over 2,000 m (6,500 ft) above sea level and it is said to be connected with the story of Noah: according to legend, when Noah saw this high, flat terrain, he dropped anchor and told everyone to leave the Ark.
Start off your visit on the 11th (Tue): examine the collection at Khinalig Village. Here are some ideas for day two: admire the sheer force of Laza Waterfalls.
