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 cable car in the world is located in Armenia, and they are rightly very proud. The cable car links the village of Halidzor, where it's easy to get there by car from route M10, Tatev monastery, with a path of 5.725 meters supported by 4 pillars and with a maximum height of 320m. The speed is 37m/h that will take you to the monastery in a dozen minutes ... you'll spend, if you suffer from Vertigo and admire the panorama below! With 5000 DAM, about €5, you can buy the return ticket!

  • Amazig aerial tram with magnificent view and excellent service. You should visit it, if you're in Armenia. Don't be afraid of very long road to this place - it's really worth it!
  • Nice tramway built by the Swiss. Kind of a pain in the ass at the end though, everyone starts pushing for the last tram.....and if you dont make the last one, you have to ride a cab up. But it looks like a nice ride through the mountains
  • Try the Wings of Tatev, and you will remember this journey forever!!!
  • Extremely organized, really clean bathrooms, nice restaurant, and really friendly staff 👍🏻 the tramway itself is amazing and really safe 👌🏻
  • Great views from the ropeway.
