Khor Virap is a monastery in the province of Ararat. This is one of the most culturally and historically significant monuments in Armenia. Khor Virap is Armenian for “deep pit”.

This is where Saint Gregory the Illuminator (“Surb Grigor Lusavorich” in Armenian) was imprisoned for 13 years living in this deep pit. In a way, this can be seen as a monument to

the birth of Armenian Christianity. In fact, it can be seen as the starting place of Christianity altogether, as Armenia was the first country to adopt it as an official religion. This is due to the work of Saint Gregory.

Noravank , the beautiful Noravank Monastery was built in the 13th century on the ledge of narrow winding gorge above the Amaghu River, near the city of Yeghegnadzor.

The spare lines of the church contrast beautifully with the sharp red rock cliffs, and the dramatic scenery is one of the best reasons to visit Noravank.

Tour Plan


(130 km to the North-East of Yerevan )

The Parz Lich ( Clear Lake ) is situated 9km South-East of the town of Dilijan at an altitude of 1350m. It is fed by mountainous springs. It is 300m long, 100m wide and reaches up to 10m in depth.
Starting your walk from the lake, you proceed (about 3 hours) along forest paths to Goshavank Monastery. The XII-XIII century monastery played a very special role in medieval Armenia’s religious, cultural, and educational life. Here stands one of the masterpieces of Armenian unique art, the famous “Aseghnagorts” khachkar – “Embroidered” cross tone, the work of sculptor Varpet (Master) Poghos. On the way back (by car) to Yerevan, you can visit the Monastery of Haghartsin
