About Group

This time we are going to discover the unique architectural monument – Tatev Monastery. Before reaching Syunik province, we will visit the magnificent  monastery of Noravank. The impressive monastic complex amazes visitors with the elegance of its ornate sculptures in harmony with the surroundings. We will continue our way to the magnificent Shaki Waterfall, which is one of the most beautiful natural monuments in Armenia. The height of the waterfall is 18 meters. Then we will visit Tatev monastery, where you can sit the record-breaking ropeway Tatever. In the 500-meter gorge of the Vorotan River, we will see one of the natural wonders of Armenia, the Devil’s Bridge. This monument has been formed for millennia, due to the constant influence of water and wind.

The next stop will be Harsnadzor observation point, from where a wonderful view of Vorotan gorge opens.
It is the third among the observatories built in Zangezur. Within the framework of the tour we will have a free wine tasting in Areni winery. On the way we will also visit Karahunj.

In order to see the Tatev Monastery, you may take the ropeway.

Noravank, Armenia

Noravank monastery is located in Vayots Dzor province, 3 km northeast of Amaghu village. The name of the monastery is translated as “new monastery”. Noravank was built in the 13-14th centuries. The monastery complex is located on a steep mountain ledge, near the cliff. The territory is “framed” by unusual cliffs of bright red color, which create a very picturesque background for the buildings. Noravank was an important cultural and spiritual center in the Middle Ages; it also served as the residence of the bishops of Syunik province. Noravank monastery is one of the most visited attractions in Armenia. The complex is a magnificent architectural and artistic creation. The monastery was completely restored.

Tatev Monastery, H45, Tatev, Armenia

Tatev Monastery (IX-X century) is located in Syunik province. The monastery has a rich history. Tatev was not only a spiritual, but also an educational center. One of the best universities, where the humanities were studied, functioned here during the Middle Ages. The monastery buildings stand almost on the edge of a steep cliff, from where visitors can admire a stunning picturesque scenery of the gorge. The path to the monastery was quite long and difficult years ago, by car it was necessary to get to the place along the mountainous road-serpentine. However, after the opening of Tatever ropeway (Wings of Tatev), the path to the attraction takes very short time. It also gives a lot of amazing unforgettable impressions. It should be mentioned that Wings of Tatev holds the record for the longest non-stop double track cable car.

Shaki waterfall is located on the Shaki River (a tributary of the Vorotan) in the north of Sisian city. The territory of the waterfall is very picturesque. You can see many small grottoes and caves here, and the waterfall itself has a truly fabulous sight. The noise and power of the waterfall, falling from a height of 18 meters, is so strong that it drowns out human voices and any other sounds.
