Blooming spring city

Zorats karer - Devil's bridge - Tatev - Shaki - Jermuk

The place where you will go in the morning is so ancient that there is still a debate about its age. This is the oldest zorac karer Observatory. Only a small part of the secrets of the ancient sages hidden in these places managed to unravel.  

Tatev monastery is the next point of the may holiday campaign in the South of Armenia. Here again, you will have to grab the camera all the time. The medieval monastery is located on a rock and offers a stunning view of the entire area. By the way, the monastery is reached by a cable car, one of the longest in the world. 

On your return to Jermuk, you will find another interesting place-a bridge created by nature over the river. It's called the Devil's bridge. And perhaps also a very interesting waterfall.

Spitakavor monastery - Proshaberd fortress - Jermuk

On victory day, you will have a trip to the Spitakavor monastery and the Proshaberd fortress. Spitakavor stands on the side of a mountain - it is a small but charming medieval monastery made of white felsite, from which the name of the monastery comes (Spitak-white). 

Proshaberd also stands near Spitakavor on a mountain whose height is almost 2900m. during the construction of the fortress, all the features of the area were masterfully used and an almost impregnable fortress was built. 

In the evening, you will return to Jermuk.

Shatinvanq monastery - Smbataberd fortress - Jermuk

Shatinvanq where you go in this day, stands on the hillside. The monastery is in a dilapidated state, but there are many khachkars that testify to the past of the monastery - Shatinvank was a significant spiritual center of the middle ages. 

After Shutinvanq you waiting for the rise of the hill where stands the fortress of Smbataberd. The views that open from the fortress are difficult to describe - you just need to see them. And of course, the fortress itself is a great example of this idea.
