Nature comes to life at Old Khndzoresk, a village known for its suspension foot bridge and ancient dwellings. Walk the bridge, made of steel mesh, and explore a ravine with picturesque rock formations and cave settlements over 1,000 years old. As there are no flat areas suitable for construction of houses, people used man-made caves as dwellings, some of which reach 20-30 m (66-98 ft) from the ground. A 17th century church and a hermitage with a tomb of an 18th century national hero can be found in the area. Old Khndzoresk is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Goris Edition.

    Now you can find little, not delivered "on stream". Khndzoresk cave town-one of those unique places. The caves preserved in its natural, hotel form. Can the prolazit through bushes and find abandoned, battered by time, but well-preserved homes. Move from room to room (under the ground somewhere almost creeping), Ascend/descend on floors. However, now there began to recover. There are already artificial floors and podmazannye walls in a couple of houses. Do see the present. Until it was ordered turobektom and artificial lighting.
