Exploring more of Azerbaijan...Nakhchivan...

Did it ever happen to you that when you saw pictures of some place in some magazine it was hard for you to believe that the places pictured do really exist...

When a while ago I saw pictures of "Salt Mountain" retreat I must confess it was hard for me to believe that the place would be exactly like on the pictures...just like the name of ancient fortress in Sheki says "Come and See" I could only believe it once I would personally see it (human nature...)

Recently I visited Nakhchivan...another very rich area of Azerbaijan. One of Nakhchivan's treasures is its "Salt Mountain". This is a unique place created by miracles of nature and care of people for those that suffer from breathing problems to find relief...

Sharing with you some photos...I hope they would be convincing enough although seeing and experiencing "Salt Mountain" in real is much better...

the place looks very modest from outside...this makes what you see inside even more impressive...
one of the pathways of retreat that you find yourself on soon after you start going into the mountain...
there are "rooms" to stay overnight or during the time of treatment...
it is also possible just to walk, sit on the benches or even have a snack...
healing miracle of salt...salty walls of salty mountain...I tasted...the walls taste salty indeed...
healing miracle of salt...salty walls of salty mountain...
healing miracles of these mountains were discovered in ancient times...
these mountains are not green and fluffy...they have beauty and miracle of their own...
