Wings of Tatev, Syunik Province

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.

  • It is the easiest way to get to the Monestry at Tatev and to see the town of Tatev. Both worth the trip. The view from the cable car is great! Very modern and very safe.  more »
  • Of course the cableway adds new experiences, it is remarkable that in the cockpit audio guide, including Russian, the path to the monastery is significantly reduced. But we were on holidays, do not know how many tourists at another time. Round trip ticket specifies only the departure time to the monastery. Back you can leave at any time. And here's the stand you half an hour under the Sun in the queue and mood from visiting the monastery disappears on the wings of Tatev.

  • 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.
  • 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.😊
  • Been there many time and each time was great experience highly recommended to visit
  • Amazing cable car rides and also the bumpy car rides the zig-zag road - you don’t need to use the zig-zag road as the parking lot to the wing of Tatev is before this road, but you can try the bumpy ride if you like 😄
  • Amazing place, beautiful views, guide on the way. Worth visiting. Restaurant, nice security and great idea to spend time. Price 4000 (round ticket).
