In the Northern part of Nakhchivan right near the border with Armenia locate? a marvelous place - Batabat. Many locals come here often for having a day out and to have a barbeque. Batabat is an unpopulated alpine valley high above the quaint, partly wooded village of Bichanak. Batabat's main feature is Ganli Gol ('Blood lake'), on which a couple of large, flat turf islands 'float'. This is less dramatic than it sounds as it can take days for them to move a few metres. To get there from Nakhchivan one have to move towards the regional centre of Shahbuz where one supposed to sign in at the police station before continuing to Batabat.
