Have you ever seen vivid canvases of Armenian artists? The abundance of colors, the complexity of the landscape and endless mountains. All this is not a figment of imagination, but the amazing nature of the edges of Armenia. The village of Areni, near the river Arpa, which flows right through the center of the village, is one of the instances of such an amazing entity of colors and memorable places. Its fascinating nature has been creating gorges, high mountains and endless hills. Areni is a living picture that can make you fall in love with this land forever.

Tatev or wings of Armenia

“May the holy spirit send wings!”, this was the phrase with which one of the workers who built the Tatev monastery dropped from the cliff and abruptly ascended into the sky on the wings, according to legend. The scale and beauty of Tatev can really be seen completely only from high up in the sky. It is the place the longest reverse cableway in the world was laid. During the “flight” you will discover dense forests, the gorge of the Vorotan river and the Tatev monastery itself. All this appears before your eyes in all its glory from a height of 320 meters above the ground.  It seems like everything is floating here. The only reminder that you are still on earth are the ruins of an ancient village and huge ancient trees around, but even among them there are amazing “aerial” sites, such as the desert Tatev, abandoned and forgotten after an earthquake. Tatev is a must-see point for those who are never enough to be only on earth.

Shaki waterfall is in the southern part of Armenia, close to Sisian. The fall, being located in one of the coziest and nicest corners of Syunik, gloriously opens its striking beauty to all admirers. The air here is full of inspiring melody of water and scent of mountains loading all their wafts.

About an hour of driving back will take you to one of the most ancient observatories in the world – Carahunge, the Armenian Stonehenge, which is a whopping 2500 years older than the world famous Stonehenge. This is one of the most mystical spots on our planet and is yet to be explored!
