Overview

Armenia is rich in indescribably beautiful scenes and extremely diverse landscapes. At every step, you can see incredible monuments, abundant lakes and rivers, high mountains and deep canyons. This time we will visit 3 different and beautiful places not far from Yerevan.

The first destination will be Angels Canyon. Here we will get to know the rocky canyons of Ararat region with their sunny colors. The next stop will be at the Azat Reservoir, from where a breathtaking view of the Yeranos Mountains opens. The last stop will be at Garni pagan temple, which is the only preserved pagan temple in Armenia.

  • Angels Canyon is located not far from the city of Vedi. It is a unique shaped gorge surrounded by rocks. It is a popular destination for both locals and foreigners, as it offers both unforgettable views and unique photos.
  • Azat Reservoir is located in Ararat Province, near Lanjazat village. The way to Azat Reservoir opens up a view of the Yeranos Mountains, which in turn are reflected in the reservoir and make the view even more beautiful.
  • Garni Temple is the only pagan temple preserved in Armenia, located in Kotayk Province, on the banks of the River Azat. It is dedicated to the god Mihr, who was the God of Sun. After the adoption of Christianity, when all the pagan structures were being demolished, King Trdat III's sister Khosrovdukht asked her brother not to destroy the temple. In this way, the pagan temple of Garni reaches the present day. The 24 pillars of the temple symbolize the 24 hours of the day. Unfortunately, due to a devastating earthquake in 1679, Garni Temple was partially destroyed and rebuilt over the next 300 years.

Client-oriented company!

A client oriented company like this needs to have a lot of reviews here, they helped us so much during our vacation. As a tour agent in Australia I liked the service I got in this company so much, my mum was absolutely happy with the recommendations and the trips we got here thank you.
