Apart from its height (3,628m), Mount Babadag, which straddles the

indicates respect and Babadag (literally `Grandfather Mountain`) carries
the meaning of a high mountain covered with snow. As a matter of fact,
there are many holy mountains in other parts of the world that bear the
same name. Besides, the mountain also has several other names. Some
people call it Qarli baba (Snowy Grandfather) because its peak is
snow-covered throughout the year. Others address it as Hazrati Baba
Ziyaretgahi (`Grandfather `s Pilgrimage `), believing that those who
visit this place seven times receive the honorific title of Hazrat,
meaning `His Holiness ` or `Your Majesty.

Walking to Khinalig
Itinerary

• Breakfast
• Walking to Khinalig ( 5 hours)
Khinalug is over 5,000 years old. For centuries, this village has been
cut off from civilization by hard-to-reach mountains with dangerous
rocky cliffs. Due to the isolation, its residents managed to preserve
their unique language, not belonging to any language group, as well as
traditions and customs found nowhere else. Khinalug population is about
2,000, all the residents are aboriginals, and divided into 4 families.
Each family has its own graveyard, its own patterns for carpets and
clothing. Khinalug residents practice Muslim and before Islam they were
fire worshipers. This is proved by the fire temples and some semi-pagan
traditions having nothing to do with the Muslim ones. The first records
of this people date back to the first century AD in the Roman historian
Pliny `s writings and in famous Strabo `s Geography. But a speaking
proof of extreme antiquity of the village is its 8 large graveyards,
whose area is much larger than that of Khinalug itself. The graves, made
in 3 and even 4 layers, bear inscriptions in different alphabets on
their gravestones.
