Khinalig is a must see for any traveler coming through Azerbaijan. Isolated from the outside world for thousands of years, this village of roughly 1200 people has preserved its own unique language and way of life for generations. Homes are built tier style up the side of the mountain using stone work and many roofs are still made of earth and mud. A new road makes access to this mountain escape a more simple endeavor than it once was. Some say the scenery on the ride up, as you pass through ‘cloud catcher canyon’, is even more exciting than the village itself.
