Nohurlar is an ancient village located 1,000 meters above the sea level. They say that it was built in the 16th century. Its previous name was Gomur. Then the village was renamed Nohurlar. Nohur is the name of a closed water pool here. It also means a lake. The village derives its name from nearby lakes. The area has seven beautiful mountain lakes. These are freshwater lakes that formed after a strong earthquake in the past. Locals call them miraculous mountain villages. Each of them has fresh water and diffe­rent colors. It is dangerous to swim here as they are very deep and cold. Nohurlar is a tourist paradise. It is possible to try tea from plants that are good for blood pressure, kidneys, heart, head and sto­mach aches. According to the program to develop provinces launched by the communist leader Nikita Khrushchev in the 1960s, the village population was totally resettled to the district center. Therefore, the village still has no social infrastructure. For this reason, no-one lives in the village. Villagers use this area as summer pastures and move here in summer. They prepare for winter and then leave the village after the onset of cold weather. We managed to establish contracts with the large village popula­tion. We wondered about the lifestyle in Nohurlar and visited homes. Homes in the village are built from stone and co­vered with wood. The interior is bleac­hed with limestone. This creates a speci­al smell inside the houses. Every house has two or three small rooms. Furnitu­re is not used here. Instead, there are plenty of blankets, mattresses, pillows and mutakkas. There is no electricity in the village. Oil lamps are still being used here.We noticed that the homes we visited offered a lot of dairy products and mo­tal. The elder of one house was happy to share all tips about ways of making them with us.
