THE HEALING SPRINGS

One of the rich natural resources of Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic is its healing springs and mineral waters. There are more than 250 healing mineral water springs in the territory of Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic and most of them are used for treatment and beverage.

The Sirab mineral water deposit is situated at an altitude of 1100 m above  sea level, 3 km away from the north of the village Sirab,  18 km away from the city of Nakhchivan (North-West) , in the territory of Babak region. Sirab (mysterious  water) or Sarab (main water) has been famous for ages and  known as an vital means of treatment. Three types of waters differing in their chemical composition, were discovered in the deposit.

 I type is less mineralized, carbon- aerated, hydro-carbonated, rich with calcium-sodium. It is of  “Narzan” (Kislovodsk) type waters.

 II type is carbon-aerated, arsenic, mean level  mineralized, hydro-carbonated-chloride with sodium for its chemical composition. It is of “Borjomy” type.

III type carbon-aerated, arsenic, highly-mineralized, with hydro-carbonated-chloride, sodium. It is similar to “Sinegorsk” in Sakhalin and “Daridagh” waters in Julfa. The Sirab mineral water is used in the treatment of gastroenteritis, liver and other diseases.

The Badamly mineral water deposit is situated at an altitude of 1274 m above sea level, 3 km away from the village of Badamly, (South-West), in the territory of Shahbuz region. The Badamly mineral water deposit consists of a group of springs. The chemical composition of the water is carbon- aerated, hydro-carbonated–chloride with sodium-calcium. It is of the “Narzan” (Kislovodsk), “Sagveri” (Georgia) type water .

The Vaykhir mineral water deposit is situated an altitude of  1100 m above  sea level, in the north-west of Vaykhir, 18 km away  from the north from the city of Nakhchivan, in the area of Babak region.

It consists of a group of  some springs. Two types of waters were discovered in the wells of the central parts.

 I  is of the “Yesentuki” type, mean level mineralized, carbon- aerated, hydro-carbonated-chloride, with sodium–calcium.

II is of the “Sirab” and “Soymi” type, carbon- aerated, less mineralized, hydro-carbonated with calcium-sodium.

Mineral water may be used In the treatment of the hepatitis, bile duct inflammation, chronic gastritis, chronic colitis and other diseases.

The Gulustan mineral water is in the bed of the Alinjachai, 2,5 km away from the village of Gulustan, in the territory of Julfa region. The mineral water bubbles up  from the well with 135 m in depth which was drilled in 1962. The water is carbon-aerated, less mineralized, hydro-carbonated with sodium-calcium-magnesium. It is of the same type of “Kislovodsk” (Russia) and “Sirab” (Babak) waters.

It is used in treatment of the gastro enteric diseases.

The Daridagh mineral water deposit is situated at attitude of 800-900 m above sea level, on the slope of Daridagh,  8 km away from the city of Julfa, (North-East) , in the territory of Julfa region. It consists of 5 springs and 32 exploration wells. The water of the deposit is carbon-aerated, arsenic, highly mineralized, chloride-hydro-carbonated with natrium: it is similar to the waters of “Kudava” (Poland), “Lya Burbul” (France), “Durkgeym” (Germany), “Sinegorsk” (Russia).

The Ashabi-Cave mineral water deposit is on the slope of the Ashabi-Cave mountain, 12 km away from the city of Nakhchivan, 6 km away from the village of Gahab, (South – East) , in the territory of Babak region. The water spurs and boils out at every 15 minutes. The water is with radon, carbon-aerated, less mineralized, hydro-carbonated, chloride-sulfate , with sodium-calcium. It is identical  to the water “Pyatigorsk” of the Russian Federation. It is used in the treatment of the rheumatic  diseases.

The Nahajir mineral water is at an altitude of 1700 m above sea level,  17 km away from the city of Nakhchivan, not far from the village of Nahajir, in the territory of Julfa region.

The water is carbon-aerated, less mineralized, hydro-carbonated, with sodium composition. For its chemical composition, it is  of “Yessentuki” type and it has irreplaceable means in the treatment of the gastro enteric diseases.

The Tivi mineral water spring is situated around the village of Tivi of Ordubad region. It consists of several spring sources. The water is carbon-aerated, less mineralized, hydro-carbonated, with calcium-magnesium. It is of “Narzan” type.

        It is advisable to use in the treatment of the inner-body diseases. The mineral waters Sirab, Badamly, Gulustan are used as beverage at  the same time.
