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.

  • The longest reversible ropeway. View from the booth, simply stunning! On their way, talks about the audio guide works things to note during the trip. Well, in the end, to contrast with the modern-Tatev ropeway! By the way, at the top of the free WiFi. You can drink coffee while admiring the birds of prey, and soaring over the Gorge. Or this valley. I don't know.

  • Impressions of the best height is very large, the feeling of weightlessness when going through the highest point on the mountain. Staff very politely-flight attendant answers all questions very kindly.
