Dagestan 2022. The abandoned village of Gamsutl.
All doors in the village of Gamsutl, as many years ago, according to the law of the mountains, are open to every traveler. Having climbed almost half a kilometer up the narrow footpath to the ledge of Mount Gamsutlmeer, bounded on three sides by inaccessible cliffs, it is unlikely that anyone will now meet a breathless traveler and invite them to tea. Many years ago there was a large Avar settlement, carved out of the rocks, self-sufficient and invulnerable to conquerors. In the village there was a kindergarten, a school, a clinic and even a maternity hospital. But later the village was deserted, in 2015 its last inhabitant died. For Gamsutl, time has long stopped, and instead of roofs over houses, there is only a blue sky.
