Lake Garanohur is a mountain lake located in the Ismayilli district. The lake is 12 km north-east of the city of Ismayilli at 1,533m above sea level.
The lake is in the Shahdagh National Park and roads lead to it from the villages of Talistan, Diyally and Kekhna-Dakhar. The main tourist route begins in the village of Talistan. The total distance from the entrance to the Shahdag National Park to the lake is 5.5km and the trail runs all the way through wooded areas. 4km of the total distance is a steady incline while the remaining 1km is steeper. The route is marked from beginning to end, allowing for safe walking all the way.
Lake Garanohur is very pleasing to the eye with views that change every season. In summer it mirrors the surrounding trees, while in winter it ices over enough to be able to walk on it, and the surrounding area is completely white. In autumn the lake is surrounded by colourful trees. On the way to the lake, you must cross a river several times. During summer, the river’s water level increases and may flood in times of heavy rainfall. As a result, it is recommended that you double-check the accuracy of weather forecasts before visiting. Note too that since the lake is located within the national park, you need to pay a small fee when entering.
