Pristine secluded beaches, panoramic shoreline dotted with beautiful rocky formations, winding trekking trails and a wide variety of vegetation - Baku National Park boasts of these and more. However, this park's biggest attraction is a special monkey. Besides these long-nosed monkeys, the park is also a fascinating place for bird-watchers and wildlife fans - with over 150 species of birds and a host of other animals species! How can I miss the magnificent Mulu National Park! Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000, this park is famous for its spectacular natural treasures - world's largest limestone cave system, rugged karst mountains, stunning limestone pinnacles, and an overwhelmingly diverse variety of flora and fauna.
