Aragats is a large volcano with numerous fissures and advent cones. Several large lava flows descend from the volcano and are limited in age between the Middle Pleistocene and 3000 BC. The summit crater is cut by a 13 km (8.1 mi) long line of cones that probably produced Holocene-era lahars and lava flows.

It is home to unique species that are considered wealth not only of Armenia but of the entire world. 


The Temple of Garni is the only building with Greco-Roman colonnades in Armenia and the former Soviet Union. Built in Ionic order in the village of Garni, Armenia, it is the most famous structure and symbol of ancient Armenia. According to some scholars, it was not a temple but a tomb and therefore survived the destruction of the pagan structure. It collapsed in the earthquake of 1679. Renewed interest in the 19th century led to excavations at the site in the early and mid-20th century, and its final reconstruction between 1969 and 1975, using the anastylosis method.

Then you can visit the Geghard Monastery. Geghard is a medieval monastery in the Kotayk province of Armenia, partially surrounded by rocks cut into an adjacent mountain. While the main chapel was built in 1215, the monastery complex was founded in the 4th century by Gregory the Illuminator on the site of a sacred spring inside a cave. Hence the original name of the monastery was Erivanik, which means “cave monastery”. The magnificent cliffs surrounding the monastery are part of the Izzat River gorge, with a relatively complex walled area. and deep chambers within the rock. This combination, together with numerous carved and free-standing khachkars, is a unique sight, one of the most visited tourist attractions in Armenia. 

8 smbataberd 

Sambatabrid is a fortress located on a hilltop between the villages of Artabyunk and Yegigis in the Vyts Zor province of Armenia. It was built in a very advantageous position at the southern end of a ridge, protected on three sides by steep cliffs. The massive walls with towers are still relatively intact on the outside. Little remains of the fort except the faded foundations of buildings near the fortification walls and a keep at the highest point of the site. It has a really beautiful view.

Then you can continue your way to Tsaghats Kar. The Takshatkar complex is a 13th century metropolitan. In the 5th century, during the war against the Sassanids, four battles were fought at Viots Dzur, one of which took place near Taskhat Kar. The most famous battle of the war took place at Ovari in 451, which was important in increasing Armenian resistance and eventually the right to an independent existence. 


Hagpat Monastery, also known as Hagpatavank, is a medieval monastic complex in Hagpat, built between the 10th and 13th centuries. It was not built on a summit but in the middle of a hill, in a place chosen to protect and hide from view and also in response to a kind of monastic humility. It is built on a green promontory in the middle of a mountain range, often shrouded in clouds. A peak on the other side of the river is more than 2,500 meters high. The monasteries of northern Armenia are not isolated, unlike their counterparts in the arid regions of the country.

They were built in a village environment and Hagapat is surrounded by many settlements. After that visit Sanahin. Sanahin Monastery is an Armenian monastery founded in the 10th century in Lori Province, Armenia. The name Sanahin literally translates from Armenian as “it is older than that”, probably representing the monastery’s claim to be older than the neighboring Hagpat monastery. The two towns and their monasteries are similar in many ways and lie opposite each other on a disjointed plateau, separated by a deep “cleft” formed by a small river that flows into the Dibad River.
