Saghmosavank monastery, Armenian Alphabet Monument, Amberd fortress, local food making and tasting in “Tonatsuyts” national culture center, TRADITIONAL LUNCH

This tour takes you to explore one of the most beautiful gorges of Armenia:  the Gorge of Qasakh River, famous for its beautiful churches standing right on cliff’s edge.

The monastic complex included in this daily tour date back to the 13th century. Saghmosavank is translated as the monastery of psalms. According to the legend, the psalm singing of Gregory the Illuminator was heard for several miles, when he asserted in the caves underneath the church. It was also famous for its medieval manuscripts and book-repository.

On the way we will have a stop at the Armenian Alphabet Monument, where you will be given the chance to find the first letter of your name and even snap a picture with it. Armenian is not only a very old language, but it is also an independent branch of the Indo-European languages, making it unlike any other tongue in the world.

The tour will take you to the Amberd fortress, located on the slopes of Mount Aragats – the highest peak in Armenia. In the 13th century, the Zakaryan noble family started the liberation of Armenia from the Seljuk Turks from this very fortress. The name “Amberd” originates from the fact that the fortress is located at the altitude of 2300m above the sea level, translating as “Fortress in the Clouds”.

After an eventful tour, you will take part in a master class on cooking and tasting a national Armenian dish in “Tonatsuyts” national culture center, where you will have a delicious lunch in the best Armenian traditions.
