  • The longest cableway. price back and forth on 3 was only 12000 AMD. BTW all proceeds goes to Tatev Temple reconstruction. We were lucky and we arrived before the arrival of tourist buses and therefore in the booth was empty apart from us (and so the man calmly 20 fit). look through the transparent walls of the stunning and Devil's bridge and waterfall and Gorge ... unforgettable

  • This is one of the greatest attractions in Armenia, a real must for your tour. You travel by a large cabin that takes you over 2 valleys. The view is breathtaking. What you see is explained in Armenia...  more »
  • Try to get on early, so you can stand next to one of the many windows, as the trip shows some great views of the surrounding landscapes, as well as an abandoned monastery nea the bottom of the gorge. ...  more »

  • 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.
