Landmark · Tourist Spot
Nature comes to life at Old Khndzoresk, a village known for its suspension foot bridge and ancient dwellings. Walk the bridge, made of steel mesh, and explore a ravine with picturesque rock formations and cave settlements over 1,000 years old. As there are no flat areas suitable for construction of houses, people used man-made caves as dwellings, some of which reach 20-30 m (66-98 ft) from the ground. A 17th century church and a hermitage with a tomb of an 18th century national hero can be found in the area. By using our Goris day trip site, you can arrange your visit to Old Khndzoresk and other attractions in Goris.
