Arrival in Khinaliq, before the lunch we spend time exploring this highest settlement in Azerbaijan surrounded by breathtaking views of Caucasus Mountains. The hypnotic views and the main attraction is meeting Khınalıq’s 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.
Khinaliq is Azerbaijan’s highest mountain village, approximately 2300 meters above sea level. Khinaliq is in a stunning location not far from Shahdag, Azerbaijan’s highest peak, in the southeast ridge of the Caucasus Mountains. It has an ethnically distinct population with their own unique language, habits, and culture.
