Khinalig - it is the oldest settlement in Azerbaijan situated on the northern slope of the Main Caucasian Ridge at an altitude of 2100-2200 m. above sea level. The residents of the village consider themselves as direct descendants of the biblical Noah. History of Khinalig is dating back more than 5000 years. For many centuries this village was cut off from civilization by hard-to-reach mountains with dangerous rocky cliffs.
Nowadays there are about 380 houses, which are 200-300 years old. The houses are built closely: the roof of one house serves as a patio for another located above, it happened because of steep slopes surrounding village.
