Photographer's Note

One of many Dagestan villages, out of necessity in the past built on top of mountains or rocks. Nowadays, most of those are abandoned, their residents having moved to lower grounds. This is the atmospheric village of Goor, whose houses have mostly been rebuilt a few hundred meters below, while towers remain standing as eery reminders of the past. This village has a dedicated guide, Ibrahim, whose story of the village makes the harrowing trip on bad roads even more worthwhile.
Thanks for looking
