  • Tatev ropeway-the longest in the world. Its length is 5 km. From the top with a beautiful panorama. Every year tourists from all over the world. Here you can enjoy the beautiful nature and get to know the local culture.

  • Be sure to visit. Far from Yerevan, but worth it (though and the road from Yerevan to Tatev is very beautiful). Height is awesome, a bit scary, but insanely beautiful, you fly over the Gorge, above the abandoned monastery, over the mountains and forests.

  • The longest cable car in the world offers spectacular views on the way to a solemn church and monastery. The ride also provides information (in English as well as other languages) about the different landmarks along the ride. The nearby cafe is also exceptional, and there is free wifi. One issue is that the return trip is not organized (boarding times are not specific) and there can be a large number of people that try to cut in line. Also, security will not do anything about it! I had to wait in line for a return trip for an hour and a half. During the wait, I tried to prevent some disrespectful non-Armenian tourists (some drunk) from cutting in line, and the security simply disappeared! The cable cars are small, so letting drunk and disorderly people aboard could be very dangerous. As such, the security personnel need to be more proactive. For parents with very little children, asking to cut in line is fine, but it is not okay when large numbers of people try to cut in line, every cut like that adds an extra 15 minute of wait! It would be nice if the return ticket had a specific time as well. I think this could go a long way towards resolving the issues I experienced.
