Yuxarı Əskipara (also Okari-Eskipara, Yukhary Askipara; Armenian: Վերին Ոսկեպար Verin Voskepar – all meaning "Upper Askipara") is a destroyed Azerbaijani village in the Qazakh Rayon of Azerbaijan. It forms an exclave of Azerbaijan. The exclave is surrounded by Armenia and has been controlled by it since the Nagorno-Karabakh War which also included fighting in Qazakh. Today, the village is destroyed with only the foundations and some lower portions of the houses remaining. A cemetery is intact as is a children's playground used by the residents of neighboring Voskepar. The Armenian army expelled its Azerbaijani population after it occupied the territory, which Armenia administers as part of its Tavush Province.
