Baku, April 14, AZERTAC
A rural gem of Azerbaijan’s Gusar district, the picture-perfect village of Laza is located just beyond the luxurious Shahdag Mountain Resort at the bottom of a valley in the heart of the Greater Caucasus Mountains.
Surrounded by steep slopes rising into craggy cliffs, the scenery here is unspoilt and awe-inspiring.
The village is inhabited by Lezgis, another ethnic minority with a distinct language and culture, home to a centuries-old mosque and popular with hikers.
However, the main attraction is its twin waterfalls flowing over a dramatic cliff face from an altitude of 2,200m.
In summer, they attract a daily stream of nature lovers, while in winter they freeze into breathtaking ice monuments and become a playground for ice climbers.
