  • Amazing scenery and architecture. This unique vank has stairs to climb in order to reach the main chapel. The stone blends into the backdrop and you will find many striking photo ops.  more »
  • What a great drive. Sadly we were in a tour bus and not a convertible! The monastery here too is incredible and also some wine tasting very close by. Great day trip from Yerevan  more »
  • I was pleasantly surprised on my drive to Noravank Monastery and Goris by the spectacular mountains and surrounding scenery. This gorge is definitely worth visiting.  more »
