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.

Perhaps it is calmness and confidence, perhaps - the aspiration of the ups and the unwavering power, perhaps - beauty and versatility. Every thinking person will find something different in the mountains, but everyone will want to come back. The mountains of Armenia are by no means an exception. They are beautiful, diverse, hide a lot of wonderful places, and suddenly lift the veil of mystery in front of an astonished traveler. I love mountains, and they reciprocate. How can you appreciate your love? )
