Caucasus Mountains, Yerevan

4.8
#2 of 42 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.

  • There were in Ararat Valley with views of Ararat and Sevan with mountain views. Beauty in Armenia! Highly recommend!

  • The mountains are always impressive. They are different everywhere. Even if you have seen more grandiose, the mountain air and Panorama still will not leave you indifferent. And-yes, we saw Ararat twice! We're lucky! It seemed to us because of the clouds and fogs in this cold December.

  • They were here always-and before us and after us they too will be, better mountains can be only mountains, and they here everywhere

  • WATCHED THIS ON FAST AND THE FURIOUS 7 SHEER DROP OF 400+ FEET NEAR THE CLIFFS WOULD NOT RECKON MEND DRIVING OR FALLING OFF THEM
  • Good views ..
  • Great mountain! Great nature
  • Ty for the definition and photos of Caucasus Mountains. I as are the Caucasians came to be from the 10 tribes of Israel. Be wonderful had you gone into greater depth relating this. Also do not diminish take away truth by becoming politically correct. There is absolutely nothing worse than destroying history and any truth.
  • Nice dame 🇸🇦
