Hiking Tour in Armenia

adventure vacationWhat does "hiking" mean in Armenia? Gorges and churches perched on the bare cliffs or in deep forests, caves and villages
cut in the rocks. Imagine that you find yourself somewhere far away, surrounded by high cliffs and alpine grasslands. Imagine that on your way everybody living in the traditional villages, small and old will meet you as friends. Imagine you can see the unique historical sites, which are far from the motorways and only overcoming the difficulties of the long way you can admire them. If you are a restless seeker of adventure, if you are interested in flora, fauna and geology, if you want to feel the odour of the ancient history of Armenia, join us on the way of excitement and discovery.

places to see smile.gif next time i'm in Armenia

Smbataberd Fortress

Smbataberd Fortress
From Armeniapedia.org

IX AD - Vayots Dzor Marz
Smbataberd Fortress side from below.

Smbataberd Fortress side from below.

The 9th century fortress of Smbatabert**. This spectacular castle sits on the crest of the ridge between Artabuynk and Yeghegis (or, as most people still call them, Yeghegis and Alayaz), and includes an upper citadel. The castle received water from a buried clay pipe leading from the monastery. According to legend, the Turks compelled the fortís surrender by employing a thirsty horse to sniff out the pipeline. (Source: Rediscovering Armenia Guidebook.)

The road leading up to Smbatabert is very very narrow and steep, with barely enough space for one Niva and a sheer cliff on one side. I recommend walking, especially if there has been significant rains lately. Fill up your water bottles at the pipe-spring you passed a little after driving through the river, I did not see water at the top.
