Xinaliq, Azerbaijan

A tiny mountain village near the border of Russia. As the highest-altitude village in Azerbaijan (and, arguably, all of Europe), a visit to Xinaliq is a glimpse into the ‘real’ Azerbaijan. Here, friendly shepherds, wooly sheep, and friendly villagers come to greet you. The views in Xinaliq are spectacular and, despite the 1 or 2 tours that come through here daily, it truly feels like an untouched destination.

Many people choose to visit Xinaliq as a day trip from Baku or Quba. However, if you’d like to spend more than one day here, many locals offer homestay options.
