Old Khndzoresk, Syunik Province

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.

  • The caves are not connected to each other. No stairs, no trails, it makes it very difficult to inspect. I saw several groups with guides who inspected 3-4 caves, then went to the temple and this tour ended and I can not say that the guides showed or told something interesting. If we compare Chndzoresque with Georgian Vardzia and Uplichs, Chndzoresk is significantly inferior.

  • I've seen a lot of cave towns, but I've never seen one of them. I advise you to visit. One bridge swinging is worth it. Take more time, there is a place to walk.
