A short drive (about 14 kilometer) from Gilazi on the main road connecting Baku and Quba are the Candy Cane Mountains.

The mountains have beautiful rose and white stripes and swirls, and are littered with small conical fossils. We had only a few minutes, but there is enough to see for a day excursion!
