Our driver and guide was Habil/ Habeel. The entire trip was long, but he made our journey fun. we went to Sheki Khan Palace which was our favourite spot, beautiful place and story behind it. We skipped the waterfall as it is 200 steps to reach the spot, but Habil was able to show us an alternative place that was breath taking. last note, stop at Nohur Gol restaurant, food, view and place are just fabulous! Thank you Habil/ Habeel!
