Lahic, Azerbaijan

Located northwest of Baku en route to Sheki (below) is Lahic, a small metalwork artisan town resting high up in the mountains. It’s a bit more developed for tourists than places like Xinaliq, so it’s perfect for a weekend getaway from Baku or a pit stop on the way to another destination. It’s a bit of a trek to get here from the city, but it’s worth it for the local immersion a trip to Lahic provides.

While in Lahic, you can wander the town’s cobblestoned streets, stop into local metal design shops, and even stumble upon livestock that runs amok in the streets. You can also experience the provincial Azerbaijani life by staying in a homestay and sampling some unique local dishes.

Like Xinaliq, there are a number of local homestays and guest houses available in town.
