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.

    In remote Southern Armenia has been built thanks to wealthy Armenian donors a new entry into the Guinness Book of World Records: the longest non-stop double track cable car. Not surprisingly in charge...  more »

    It is certainly an experience to fly for about 6 kilometres of a rocky ridge to the next to reach an ancient monastery. Impeccable service and new structure of realization of Switzerland. Moderate cost (about 8 euros) and breathtaking chills when switching between a pylon. There are cafeteria, bathrooms and infographics enhance construction and context to know its history. Unforgettable experience. Not to be missed!

    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.

    Old and authentic, still in use as a monastery.
