Itinerary
  • 10: 00 Departure
  • 10:45-11:45 Saghmosavank Monastery
    The Region of Aragatsotn located towards the North-West of the country is also worthwhile to visit. The journey will take you to the slopes of Mount Aragats, currently the highest peak in Armenia with its 4090 meters of height. Saghmosavank Monastery, one of the architectural gems of the Armenian Christian history, is almost about to "fall into" the Kasakh river gorge. The south-eastern side of the monastery's courtyard opens an awesome view to the canyon of the Kasakh river- a freakishly deep gorge with amazing multi-layered rock formations.
  • 12:00-12:40 Armenian Alphabet Park
    The next stop will take you to the fun Armenian Alphabet Park where you will be told about the amazing story of the creation of the Armenian Alphabet in the 5th century and other linguistic facts about the Armenian language
