The highest peak of the Karabakh uplands (Little Caucasus). Precipices, ravines, cliffs, rocks and steep slopes, and some forest near the foot of the mountain. The main land-use is (summer) sheep- grazing.
Probably the most important area in Azerbaijan and the Transcaucasus for Tetraogallus caspius, a species restricted to the Eurasian high-montane biome. Other breeding birds include Gypaetus barbatus, Neophron percnopterus, Gyps fulvus, Circaetus gallicus (possibly breeds), Aquila chrysaetos, Falco peregrinus, Bubo bubo, Alectoris chukar and Melanocorypha bimaculata. Species of global conservation concern that do not meet IBA criteria: Aegypius monachus (status uncertain).
