Travel back in time at the traditional mountain village of Khinalig, perched atop a mountain ridge at over 2,000 meters above sea level. This is the perfect place to enjoy the awe-inspiring landscapes of the Caucasus Mountains. The village’s 380 houses are scattered across the steep terrain and sit so compactly that the roof of one doubles as the courtyard of another. The local people, who are thought to be descendants of one of the ancient tribes of Caucasian Albania, speak a completely unique language and continue the ancient way of life of their ancestors. Five kilometers from Khinalig a restored Zoroastrian fire-worshipping temple can also be visited.
