Caucasus Mountains, Yerevan

4.8
#1 of 41 in Nature in Armenia
Marvel at the snow-covered double peaks of biblical Mount Ararat and other parts of Caucasus Mountains, not far from Yerevan. Hike around fabulous mountain landscapes of the Lesser Caucasus by taking a short trip outside the city, where you'll see rows of hills, mountain goats, and rolling clouds. While the largest part of the mountains is in Georgia, 5,317 m (16,854 ft) Ararat lies in both Turkey and Armenia, with spectacular scenery accessible from the latter. With its grandiose peaks and the contrast of bright and dark slopes, the mountain range close to the city offers diverse vegetation and easy trails.

  • You've got to see that! As you can put into words - it should be seen. When you walk through the Ararat Valley and your eyes appear majestic Ararat, it is breathtaking. And I went to the south of Armenia, there are solid mountains and when you go on the serpentine, you feel that for rest no Switzerland is needed - nature, air and indescribable beauty. You've got to see that! Visit Armenia and you won't regret it. And most importantly take one-day or two-day excursions from Yerevan and you will not regret it! There is something to see and you will definitely want to go back there! And the main thing is that you don't need a passport to Armenia to fly on a Russian passport.

  • Yerevan is a basin surrounded by mountains. It was a shame that i could only see Mt. Ararat vaguely because it was summer, but the scenery of the mountains was wonderful.
