|I offer you a memorable excursion to the cave town of Khndzoresk, located on the hillsides, which is literally hung on a mountain wall. The Khndzoresk suspension bridge is tossed through the mountain gorge, being no less tourist attraction than a cave city. And then using the modern wings of Tatev – cable way of the length of 5.752 meters – we will get to the Tatev Great Temple in 10 minutes!|
|What will you do?|
|So, dress yourself warmly and we will start our tour on the longest cable way in the world. The road passes over the gorge of the Vorotan River and joins two villages – Galidzor and Tatev. It takes about 40 minutes to overcome the path between those two settlements on the ground by car, while by the cable way it can be done just in 11 minutes. The highest point of the cable way is 320 meters from the ground above the Vorotan River.|
|Tatev Monastery was founded in the 9th century, and in the 14th and 16th centuries it became the most important center of science and education in Armenia. At the end of the 14th century a large university was founded on the territory of the monastery. In addition to five hundred monks, the monastery was inhabited by philosophers, musicians, painters and copyists of manuscripts. It is the place of power and amazing beauty, being a miracle of the union of architecture and nature. Tatev Monastery was known not only for its beauty, greatness, impregnability and unique natural location, but also for its cultural and educational activities. This place has such a view and such air, that you can forget about everything.|
The sense of quietness of the ancient monastery is accompanied by magnificent views. Because of its uniqueness and beauty, Tatev has a special place among the sights. And then if my guests wish, I can invite them to bath in the healing spring, which is called in the folklore to be bridge of Satan, where three types of curative waters flow, which favorably affect the body.
And after a busy trip, I will take you to Erevan.
|It is preferably to take such a tour together with the degustation and historical tour, since the route is circular. For you not to get tired I suggest that you to stop with an overnight stay in my cozy clean house in the village.|
