Gachrash – most popular recreation area in Guba district – AZERTAC


Baku, March 4, AZERTAC

Gachrash is the most popular recreation area in Guba district, located 25 km from the center of the district. Gachrash means come and sit. This toponym is also interpreted as “a place where sunlight does not fall”. In this vast area, the trees grow so densely that indeed the sun’s rays do not reach the ground and in summer it is rather cool here. In winter, these places are covered with a thick layer of snow.

Once the center of attraction for tourists was the suspension bridge located here – Asma Korpu, across the Gudyalchay River.

On the very outskirts of the territory of Gachrash there is a natural formation called Minara – in the form of a natural minaret. The length of this natural monument is 30-35 m, the width – 4-5 m, and the height – 3-4 m. It is assumed that it was formed in the 4th century as a result of tectonic movements and river erosion. The Minara also acts as a natural bridge at a height of 10-15 m. The small cave between the rocks is called the “fridge”. Indeed, it’s so cold here that the owners of a nearby restaurant have attached doors to the entrance, hung the lock and used the resulting room as a refrigerator.
