  • Gelersen Goresen

This is a set of ruins for a fortress built by a Sheki Xan many years ago to resist invasions coordinated by the Persian Shah. You can get to this fortress by first going to Kish village via either the 15 or 24 bus (the 24 is faster though becuase it puts passengers off closer to the mountains). Then hike two and a half kilometers north to a large hill with the ruins of the fortress on the top. It is a perfect area to have a picnic lunch on a summer day.

  • There is a newly constructed Cafe next to the Albanian Church in Kish. They can be contacted at 944506310246.
