Exploring the South of Armenia
The tour starts at 09:00
Haghpat village- Sanahin Monastery - Haghpat Monastery - The Cave of Mendz Er - Odzun - Haghpat village
The Lori region is rich in history and heritage, and many attractions are located in the most obscure and mind-blowing places. Odzun is the largest village in Lori, located almost on the edge of the Debed Gorge. The pearl of the village is the Odzun Church, one of the earliest Christian churches in Armenia after the Echmiadzin Cathedral. The Sanahin Monastery and the Haghpat Monastery are attractions not only in the Lori region, but also throughout Armenia due to their architectural and spiritual values and heritage. Both sites are located on a plateau and are about 15 km from each other. The monasteries are a mixture of Byzantine church architecture and Caucasian traditional architecture of about 10-13 centuries. Both monasteries are charming places that are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. After that, we head in the direction of the Cave “Mendz Er", which was probably the habitat of prehistoric man, later turned into a shelter, and not so long ago turned into a goat barn.
The duration of the tour is 12-13 hours
The tour starts at 10:00
Haghpat Village - Arboretum - Lori Fortress - Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker - Yerevan
Our second day is almost entirely devoted to the natural beauties of the Lori region. We start our day with a visit to the Dendropark of Stepanavan. We will have a unique opportunity to explore this stunning forest, which has become an attraction not only for visitors, but also for professional scientists and ecotourists. Here you will also find solitude with nature and peace of mind. Next to us is the Lori Fortress, which has existed for more than one and a half thousand years, starting from the Middle Bronze Age and ending with the late Iron Age, or including the period of the Van Kingdom. Returning from the Lori Fortress, we pass by the town of Amrakits, where the Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker is located, a Russian Orthodox church, presumably built in 1846 by Ukrainian Cossacks. This is a very unique place and it is so combined with the terrain that it creates the feeling of a fairy tale.
