Caucasus Mountains, Yerevan

(4.9/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • You have no idea what a beauty opened when the leaves appear in front of you and a cascade of ancient mountains. Be sure to visit jazychekij shrine 1 century in the mountains-the spectacle terrific.

  • Visiting the Caucuses is a great thing to do to get out of grey Yervan in the winter. The views are stunning and the snow bright and beautiful! 
  • Best experience is to get lost in the Caucasian mountains and also try to see the Ararat ! Most beloved mountain in Armenia !
