  • Formally, the closest settlement to the monastery is Privolnoye, but with ten with superfluous kilometres. That helps you go first to Horakertu, from which already purposefully get to Huchapi. Both monastery is not nearly as well known as the neighbouring Haghpat and Sanahin and even odzun, but this is its charm. Reaching them is difficult, it is a forest, with thick and dense, gradually rising up the mountain. And this can be seen as pleasant moments. Building organically fit into the surrounding landscape. Moreover, it is as though its part of even formally to the left and right of the drum all the overgrown greenery that. Perhaps, helps maintain crumbling from the time Temple in conventional shapes. Like anything special in the monastery of Huchapi is that it is disproportionately high, which on first impression is not felt. But it is constructed from colored Tuff, retains good samples of stone carving and produces quite a good impression. Yes, and they say that in principle it is Georgian, not Armenian monastery. To the border. Moreover, from the Georgian side, it seems like it would be easier if it were not for the fact that you want to move the border crossing at Steranavana. Although the transition of Bagratashen-Sadakhlo. More recently, the status of that plot and his affiliation was unclear, and because of this, get to the monastery had a problem.
