Wings of Tatev, Halidzor

Take a scenic ride on Wings of Tatev, a long aerial tramway in the remote mountains of the country's southeast. The cable car, opened in 2010, will take you on a ten-minute ride from the village of Halidzor, across the Vorotan river gorge to the 9th-century monastery, which stands nestled on a plateau overlooking the ravine. Enjoy expansive panoramic views of the monastery and the dramatic mountainous landscape, and catch the tram back down after exploring the monastery grounds.

  • It is the longest cable car in the world that reaches the ancient Tatev Monastery. The cabins are spacious and during the tour an audio guide tells about the place and provides important information, while appreciating the incredible views of the forests of the Halidzor Valley. If you're on the lookout, you can watch the eagles pass by the booths.

  • Special thanks to guard service of the Wings of Tatev. People who helped me by finding my wallet and with a long search also finding me to give it back. Thanks to Vardan, Gor, Karen and all the others...  more »
  • An experience of a lifetime. Truly blown away by the picturesque views and the whole setup of the cable cars. The views are so breathtaking that you would be left pondering how high you are suspended in air by only a cable. It really felt great and the cloudy/snowy mountains just made our day. I felt that i should pause the car to keep clicking pictures but sometime it's best to just enjoy the view..if you are in Armenia then this is a must try..
  • The longest cable car in the world. Ariel view of the valley is awesome. It's value for money.
