Caucasus Mountains, Yerevan

4.9
#2 of 25 in Nature in Armenia
Marvel at the snow-covered double peaks of biblical Mount Ararat and other parts of Caucasus Mountains, not far from Yerevan. Hike around fabulous mountain landscapes of the Lesser Caucasus by taking a short trip outside the city, where you'll see rows of hills, mountain goats, and rolling clouds. While the largest part of the mountains is in Georgia, 5,317 m (16,854 ft) Ararat lies in both Turkey and Armenia, with spectacular scenery accessible from the latter. With its grandiose peaks and the contrast of bright and dark slopes, the mountain range close to the city offers diverse vegetation and easy trails.

    The funny thing is that some Armenians say that this is a continuation of the Caucasus Mountains, but most shared the Armenian plateau and Caucasus. it correctly. Nature and landscape entirely different, not the first year go on trjekingovym routes and have a story to tell. But everything is different. In terms of tourist, not exactly what you need ... Little rivers and little sources of forests and vegetation, very hot on the route. Recommend moving your (very affordable prices) and radialki)

    We were taken to a view post where we could see the Caucasian Mountains. It was magnificent! If you luck, you might even come across local singers, singing about freedom without any instruments!  more »

Where to stay in Yerevan

When it comes to accommodations in Yerevan, you'll find a number and a range befitting its status as the capital and most populous city in the country. Look in the Kentron (center) district, where by far the greatest number and best quality hotels can be found. Hotels in old Soviet blocks, grand former administrative buildings, or newly built high-rises offer standard to luxury rooms, along with a set of smaller hostels. With prices notoriously high for the region (and many visitors using Yerevan as a base from which to see the country), consider renting an apartment if staying for a longer period.
