State Natural-Hystoric Reserve


State Historic Museum “Hunot Canyon” amazes guests with its unbelievable beauty. From the highest point of Zrnduz you can see 250 m high walls of the canyon. They are situated above the river Karkar, in the South-West of Shushi Fortress. Travelers, preferring walking tours in the canyon, will have the chance to see awesome waterfalls, thick forests, caves, which were inhabited during Stone Age, ruins of Hunot village, ancient bridges … And all these are surrounded by huge mountains and a river, which rushes through the rocks to surprise its guests.  

More than a dozen ruined mills were saved in the territory of the State Historic Reserve “Hunot Canyon”. This proves the fact, that once Hunot was a prosperous settlement. 

Cave–spring is fresh water, which flowing from the cave riches “Mamrot Kar”, and getting the creek, creates the impression of natural «mossy umbrella», which became one of the most scenic spots of «Hunot Canyon». 

«Avana Karan» cave has served as a defensive shelter. Due to the hardly accessible location, the cave can become a safe refuge. 

All the roads, leading to the attractions of «Hunot Canyon» are marked on the tablets.
