An article about Nakhchivan published in the Great Britain's Wanderlust magazine

An article titled "Rediscover a forgotten exclave" on Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic was published on January issue of Wanderlust magazine on page 69, published in London on the initiative of British citizen Alan Amos.

The article states that there are some corners of the world that travellers just don’t see, where territorial horse-trading and the ambitions of larger nations have left them cut adrift. The Azerbaijani exclave of Nakhchivan is one such destination, passed down from Ottoman to British to Soviet hands until it broke free of its Communist yoke in the 1990s. Regent Holidays’ Nakhchivan trip turns its gaze on this mountainous region with a powerful history, visiting the reputed site of ‘Noah’s tomb’, sanatoriums built into old salt mines and medieval monuments. Head out to Batabat to reveal alpine meadows, floating islands and the pilgrim caves of Ashabi Kahf where the "seven sleepers" of the Qur’an were said to have hidden. But the real lure here is simply setting foot where few other travellers tread.

What we know about photo hunting or quiet hunt

Flora of our region has considerably expanded due to purposeful measures undertaken in the autonomous republic, which is rich in natural resources. As a result, if 20-25 years ago in the autonomous republic green areas were 0.6 percent, today this figure has increased to 14 percent.

Reserves and sanctuaries created in these green areas also serve these purposes and 27 percent of the autonomous republic are specially protected for sustaining ecological balance. Currently, specially protected areas of the autonomous republic - the Zangazur National Park named after academician Hasan Aliyev, “Arpachay”, “Arazboyu”, Ordubad State Nature sanctuaries and Shahbuz State Nature Reserve are functioning in the autonomous republic. These are also remarkable in terms of providing extensive information about the rich flora and fauna of ancient Nakhchivan. Therefore, these territories play an important role in attracting foreign tourists and visitors from other regions of our country.
