Until 2006, the village was inaccessible for nine months of the year, due to poor road conditions. However, the situation has changed and now more and more
local and foreign tourists visit the isolated village. The village is inhabited with over 2,000 light-skinned and blue-eyed people who consider themselves as ancestors of the prophet Noah.

People of Khynalygh are supposed to be one of the 26 Albanian tribes described in the "Geography" of Strabon. The feature is reflected in the numerous Albanian
cemeteries in the village and the language that stands out from other Albanian tribes' languages. Today, the inhabitants are engaged in sheep breeding and creating traditional household facilities.
