  • June 2018 nice place. Just be careful about tiny road and you might reach there and restaurant don't serve food. Better to bring food with you.
  • Very scenic and beautiful place. In the foothills of mount Aragats lake Kari is situated 3185 m above MSL. The only drawback of this location is there is no public WC. It is a shame that basic facilities are missing on a tourist attraction. For that very reason, I have rated 3 *.
