Drone footage shows ancient abandoned Avar mountain village of Koroda (meaning ‘a trap’ in Avar) in Dagestan. Sitting around 1,500 meters above sea level and surrounded by awe-inspiring Caucasus cliffs, the village was built on the confluence of two mountain streams between the third and fourth centuries A.D.
According to local annals, during the Middle ages Koroda was bustling with life, but as the villagers moved to a new settlement, life in the village dwindled.
