Old Khndzoresk, Syunik Province

Landmark
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.

  • Impressive all-and dirt road to gorge on which drive should be able to (well, that was four), and a suspension bridge over the Gorge, that go on every fourth step stubbing fluctuations, and the buildings themselves, starting with Antiquities and ending with those that lived before the 50-foot 20 century. But the special feeling aroused Eagles basking on the Rocky shelves and occasionally hovering in the sky.

  • Ancient cave city. Suspension bridge over a deep gorge. We were in the cave city several times, the best time for trip-from May to October, when the heat and all the blossoms and greenery. Cave cities in the world not so much amazing place. 15 minutes way from the city of Goris on scenic road. In General, the mountainous part of Armenia all beautiful and picturesque. Near the Gorge there is a café, toilet. You can climb through the caverns, but for children it is necessary to watch very carefully, from the hands of not releasing.
