Description

Discover five spectacular sites during a full-day private trip

We are thrilled to invite you to join this journey full of new historical discoveries.

In the morning, your guide will greet you at the lobby of your hotel, in order to head to the ancient Monastery of Khor Virap, which is one of the most sacred spots of the country. The location of the gorgeous structure will grant you the beauteous view of the Biblical Mount Ararat.

Later, the trip will proceed to the province of Vayots Dzor, where we will admire another marvelous ancient structure, called Gndevank. It was built over a thousand years ago on the bank of the Arpo River. On the route of our journey through the valley, we will witness huge natural basalt organs, which overlooks the Arpa River. The medieval complex blends in perfectly with the surrounding breathtaking nature. Some monks, who still live and work here, can be found in the territory of Gndevank. After learning about the history of the medieval treasure, we will head to Kechut Reservoir, located 10 km far from the town of Jermuk. We will stop to enjoy the endless green meadows over the viewpoint of the reservoir.

Next, we will head to the waterfall of Jermuk, located not far from Kechut Reservoir. 72 m high waterfall reminds of a girl's hair, this is why it is also referred to as ''mermaid's hair''. The lovely waterfall flows smoothly into the river Arpa. The waterfall can be easily hiked and you will not miss a chance of taking amazing photos with the waterfall in the background.

The last marvel for today will be the glorious Monastic complex of Noravank of the 13th century, located on Amaghu Gorge, which is sometimes twinned with the American Grand Canyon. This is a perfect location for taking pictures and admiring the cliffs with a red undertone. If we are lucky enough, we will come across the deer pasturing near this area.

In the evening, you will have a private transfer back to your hotel in Yerevan.
