The "Zontikner" Waterfall

Hunot Gorge, also known as the Umbrellas, is a nature reserve that surprises tourists with the beauty of the local nature. Starting from inside the gorge, the "Umbrella" waterfall cascades over a moss-covered rock and forms an umbrella-shaped waterfall. The "Umbrella" waterfall is located on the bank of the Karkar River. 

To reach the waterfall on the Shushi side, you have to pass through the ruins of the village of the same name in the steep Hunot gorge and a medieval bridge. Huge Hunot rocks extend upwards, surrounding this monument of nature and making this place indescribably beautiful.
