Overview

We leave Baku at 9:00am in the morning, with some stop-points in "Beshbarmag Dag" (Five-Fingered Mountain), Guba City and Mastargah, approximately at 12:30pm-13:00pm we are going to be in the highest village of all Europe - the Khinalug! ABOUT KHINALUG By some definitions Xnalq (2335m) is Europes highest village. Its upper half retains many ancient stone houses that form distinctively austere stepped terraces up a steep highland ridge. And the whole scene is often magically wrapped in spooky clouds that part sporadically to reveal 360-degree views of the surrounding Caucasus. Apart from examining the one-room museum and gazing at the hypnotic views, the main attraction is meeting and staying with Xnalqs hardy shepherd folk who have their own language (Ketsh) and still live much of their lives on horseback. Bring warm clothes nights can be icy cold.

Know More about this tour

Tour program:

  • Pickup from hotel
  • Stop-point at "Beshbarmag Dag" area: Atop a super-steep grassy ridge, Beshbarmag Dag is a distinctive split crag whose mystical crown of phallic rocks attracts (mostly female) pilgrims.
  • The road to Guba region: On the road we will see more cities like Khizi, Siyazan, Shabran while going to Guba.
  • Khinalug Village: The most beautiful and interesting village of Azerbaijan, located on the Lesser Caucasus mountains. Amid sheepy Caucasian foothills and dramatic canyons lie Azerbaijans grandest mountain panoramas and its most fascinating villages. The fabled ancient village of Xnalq is an unforgettable rustic getaway but the beautiful route from Quba is an attraction in itself. The road starts out through woodlands past a string of barbecue cafes, then navigates several canyons before emerging above the tree line into an almost deserted upland valley.
