Aragats is an ancient volcanic massif in Western Armenia, the highest point of the country. The walls of the volcano are towered by four towers — these are the peaks of Aragats. The height of the highest North — 4090 m, the height of the West-4007 m, East-3916 m, South-3879 m.

The volcano is surrounded by lakes — Kari, the Umroy, Lessinga.

Aragats and the surrounding hills are especially beautiful in spring, when the mountain flowers bloom and you can see how green reigns below. In one tour we will try to visit the picturesque surroundings of the volcano, pass through the lakes and try to climb all four towers of Aragats! The event is unique and more unique.

Aragats volcanic massif is not only a beautiful place, but also covered with ancient legends. When moving from the volcano to Yerevan, we will stop at the ancient fortress of Amberd on the slopes of Aragats.

The program includes a budget version of the visit to the monasteries of Echmiadzin, Sevanavank, Khor Virap, the ancient city of Artashat, hot springs under the bridge of Satan, basalt stone Symphony and many other amazing places of beautiful Armenia!
