Full description
On this tour, you will visit Amberd, a fortress on the southern slope of Mount Aragats, founded in the 7th century. Next up is Tegher monastery, built in the first half of the 13th century, offering picturesque views of the Byurakan observatory. Discover the secrets of Armenian sweets during a master class in an Armenian village garden. There comes the Alley of Armenian Letters (Alphabet Alley), which was built on the slopes of Mount Aragats in honor of the 1600th anniversary of the creation of the Armenian alphabet. This monument is unique not only in Armenia but all around the World. At the end of the program, visit Saghmosavank, a 13th-century Armenian monastic complex, unique due to its frescoes with biblical themes and the perfect harmony with the environment – vertical cliffs of Kasakh gorge.
