pay a visitto a Lezgi village
The Lezgis say: “What’s the point of a house where smoke doesn’t come from the chimney or where a guest doesn’t step across the doorstep?” You can discover the ancient and rich culture of the hospitable Lezgi people in the village of Hil in the Gusar region. The residents of this village, located in the heart of the mountains, carefully preserve their distinct culture and way of life. One of the most beautiful old traditions is Mel, a type of collective unpaid labour similar to the subbotnik. Having learnt about the interesting and colourful local customs, heard local melodies and tried traditional Lezgi dishes in a village house, you’ll feel less like a guest and more like a native resident!
