What to expect
The tour begins at the Entrance Gates of Old Baku (in front of Gosha Gala Gapisi). It will take approximately 4 hours to get to Khinalug village on top of the Grand Caucasus Mountains. This tour is quite intensive due to large distances covered. On the way to Guba photo stop on Beshbarmag Mountain. Arrival to Guba. 1-hour transfer to Khinalug village along the marvelous mountainous road. Arrival to Khinalug.  Acquaintance with life style of local people. Spend time exploring this highest settlement in Azerbaijan surrounded by breathtaking views of Caucasus Mountains. The villagers are historical and ethnic phenomenon. The thing is that they are descendants of ancient Caucasus Albanian nations. Only about 1,000 in number they have managed to preserve their original language, clothes, household, traditions and ceremonials. This small state within Khinalug state even has its own laws and regulations. For example, it has its own original customs office. Khinalug is a unique ethnic group similar to no other living in the world. The program in Guba includes visiting places of interest such as Juma Mosque (19th century), Krasnaya Sloboda settlement there. Krasnaya Sloboda is Azerbaijan's mountain Jews settlement. Over the years, they have clung to the broad outlines of their religion. Over the years, they borrowed customs from their amiable Muslim neighbors, but never assimilated. Even as their knowledge of the rituals seeped away, they adhered to the broad outlines of Judaism, faithfully attending Sabbath prayers, scrubbing their homes on Fridays, baking their own matzo on Passover and eschewing pork.
