* This tour requires at least one of the following per booking: Adult, Senior
We leave Baku at 9:00am in the morning, with some stop-points in "Beshbarmag Dag" (Five-Fingered Mountain), Guba City and Masdargah, approximately at 13:00pm we are going to be in the highest village of all Europe - the Khinalug!
By some definitions Xınalıq (2335m) is Europe’s 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 Xınalıq’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.

That guide Samir was charming : incredibly helpful and very interesting.

This is a long day trip out of Baku (12 hours) but well worth the effort. The route up into the mountains was breathtaking, with regular stops provided for refreshments and photos. Dining with a local family was an enjoyable and memorable experience.
