Wings of Tatev, Halidzor

Take a scenic ride on Wings of Tatev, a long aerial tramway in the remote mountains of the country's southeast. The cable car, opened in 2010, will take you on a ten-minute ride from the village of Halidzor, across the Vorotan river gorge to the 9th-century monastery, which stands nestled on a plateau overlooking the ravine. Enjoy expansive panoramic views of the monastery and the dramatic mountainous landscape, and catch the tram back down after exploring the monastery grounds.

  • The cableway is the main way for tourists to get a tour of the Tatev monastery. All organized groups and most of the individual travellers enjoy this. As an alternative there is the possibility to reach the monastery on local taxis are mostly private traders and prices ... well, very different: from 2500 DRAMs and above. A trip to the ropeway costs in 5000 AMD back and forth. It works only during the day, while light before 18.00. Buy tickets at the box office. But be prepared for the fact that they may not be on the next flight and you have to wait for may for a few hours. Types of travel are impressive. The cabin is fully enclosed, but glared around the circle. The cabin is planted somewhere along the 15 people and it is better to take place closer to Windows, better everything in sight. Only two seats.

  • Coolest place, most developed tourist site in the country but not overdone. Longest single span cable car drive in the world, I think (please Google to verify). The monestary is being renovated but it is a beautiful place and totally worth the visit. You get a good sense of how people used to live in the area.
  • A must visit, a long drive via beautiful scenic winding mountain roads from Yerevan... but worth it. Amazing natural beauty!!! Highly recommend on your bucket list in Armenia.
  • Monastery amazing, the cable car to and from it badly managed absurd queuing times.
  • Modern cable-car offering super view and historical sites.
  • I believe that the 5 star rate for the people who works here is not enough. Actually I forgot my atm card here,when i withdraw some amount,but they manage to give it back to me..they are very nice.😊
