Caucasus Mountains, Yerevan

4.9
#2 of 37 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 highest mountain of Armenia is four glavaja Mount Aragats. The highest northern peak there mountains, its height is 4090 meters, I was raised on it 12 times. First from the crater must climb a jumper between Western and Northern peaks, then sypuchke on false North top, then carefully go down several meters and climb the rocky ridge of living stones, which is 30 meters takes you to the top of the tripod. The column, you can write your name, sit there for 10 minutes and you can descend. South peak is the most simple, wake up to it from physicists took 1.5 hours -2. When it was a small house, now what that pathetic leftovers. If you go by physicists at North Top, nedohodja to the South, you can descend into the crater, so you'll save a whole hour. The height of the Southern Peaks 3879 m, height of Western-4007 m, Eastern-3916 m.

  • I live in Sochi. Mountains and we have, but they are so different from Armenia. They are different ... beautiful. Will tell you so, trip to Armenia turned accidentally. I am very grateful to the tour operator Mouzenidis Travel-Armenia. These guys met at the airport, placed in one of their hotels and organised excursions to us every day what we want, the groups were small 4-6 people, almost solo. Snazzy fleet of Super guides our hearts remain ARPI. All recommend Mouzenidis Travel-Armenia will help show everything to the Max for the least amount of time. Thank you very much. Recommend a visit to TATEV.
