Abenteuer im Kaukasus - Wild-Trails

Der Kaukasus, mit seinem herrlichen Gebirgskamm und als Heimat vieler alter Kulturen und Stämme, erzählt unglaubliche Geschichten und Wunder. 

Der Kaukasus erstreckt sich über 4 Länder und 3 Autonomien und war lange Zeit in polistischen Auseinandersetzungen involviert.
Die Schönheit der Natur und die Wildnis im Kaukasus ist unbeschreiblich. Wild, ungezähmt und gnadenlos. Du wirst erstaunt sein über die verschiedenen Ebenen der Natur und den höchsten Bergen Europas.

Q & A Where is Nagorno-Karabakh? With an eye on Russia and Azerbaijan to the North, deep roots with Armenia to the West, and a strategic alliance with neighboring Iran from the South, Nagorno-Karabakh remains to this day a frozen conflict zone recognized by very few nations. What about the population? This landlocked region is home 140.000 people: mostly Christian with a minority of Kurds. It is defiant and uncompromising with its independence and unique character.   How about the landscape? As its name suggests, which is a mixture of Russian, Turkish and Persian words literally translated to mean “Mountainous Black Garden”, the landscape is wild, pristine, and varied, characterized by evergreen forests, Alpine peaks, flat valleys, and the most amazing canyons and rivers. Recognized by few, the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic is one of the least travelled regions in the world, and it is one of the most beautiful and interesting. What is the currency in Nagorno-Karabakh? The Armenian Dram Are there any geopolitical logistics to travelling to Nagorno-Karabakh?  Visitors to Nagorno-Karabakh can obtain a visa once arriving in the capital, Stepanakert.
