The Chechen Experience
Azraq is a multicultural region; it is home for people with diverse origins. Having said that, we are taking you on a Chechen experience. Chechens who are originally from Chechnya- located in the north of the Caucasus Mountains- were among the first settlers in Azraq region; their culture has vastly influenced the area.
The experience starts with a 3 km bike ride from Azraq Lodge towards the Chechen House, where you will be briefed about the Chechen culture, its heritage, customs and traditions over a warm cup of tea. A Chechen lady from the nearby community will showcase the Chechen traditional costume, as well as some arts and crafts that reflect her heritage pride. At lunch, you will get indulged experiencing authentic Chechen cuisine with both savory and sweet dishes.
The journey finishes off with a traditional group picture with members of the group wearing Chechen costumes right after watching a few Chechen folkloric dances, most people find themselves can’t help but get engaged in the enthusiastic heart pumping dances!
