    We took a personal tour of the hotel. Cost 35000 drams. Helpful driver during our trip told us many interesting things, so a separate guide didn't have to do) where the tablecloths are gradually overlooking the Lake. Beautiful surrounding mountains. On top of the monastery. Species on the photo will look stunning. There is a tree somewhere on the rise to the top where knotted kerchiefs and make wishes) we made too, trawled on top, walked next to the monastery, went down to eat. Ate kebabs from cancer necks. Unusual taste, nothing to even compare. It looks like ... the omelette with a taste of the fish is generally ️ ♀ tasty) drink the house wine by the glass and went farther into the mountains. Has watched two ancient monastery. While raised in the mountains came down this fog that further windshield was nothing seen. The tops of the monasteries hid in a fog, he even billowed across the Earth. It's mesmerizing, attracts. I want to just be there, sit for awhile, think of something. So for that kind of money this tour individually just for you think even very reasonable cost.
