On the globe, there is no other country that would be so full of miracles as the land of Armenians…
Hin Khot is one of the oldest settlements in the province of Syunik, which was inhabited until the 1970s. The village lies on crags, more precisely, inside the crags. Firstly, people adapted the caves, after the dwellings were expanded by stone-made structures, which creates an impression as if houses are rising out of cliffs. There are old burial grounds (2000-1000 BC), ruins of Monastery of Khot (5th c.), and Red Monastery (12th c.). There is also another church in this village called Mrgadzori Khach, built in the second half of the 17th century. Visitors call this place Armenian Machu Picchu, though Hin Khot is much older settlement.
The wonderful Mozrov Cave is rich in diverse formations - a large variety of speleothems or decoration (limestone cave formations) such as stalactites, stalagmites, helictites, columns, flowstone, cave bacon, draperies, and rimstone dams. The cave also has visitors' most expected "crocodile" formation. There are areas in Mozrov Cave where such formations are dramatic and plentiful. The cave is the third largest one in Armenia with 260 m length, Arjeri cave is in the first place with a 3,5 km length, and Mageli cave in the second with a 1,7 km length.
Qarahunj is a 7500-year-old observatory, and not only. It impresses with its appearance: on the plateau among the high mountains, about 300 vertical megaliths rise. The stones are arranged in the form of two rings. Located in the centre of the ring there are 40 stones that form an ellipse. Here was a temple built in honor of the Armenians' God of Sun - Ari. Qarahunj is 3, 500 years older than England's Stonehenge and 3, 000 years older than Egyptian pyramids.
One of the most mesmerizing masterpieces of Armenia's nature is Devil's Bridge - a very unique and enigmatic place. It mostly consists of travertine. During many centuries, vast masses of limestone assembled together and eventually helped to "build" this bridge. Devil's Bridge is about 30 m long and 50-60 m wide. Along the edges of the bridge, stalactites are loosely hanging, and the area below resembles a catchy stalactite cave. Devil’s bridge is surrounded by mountainous springs due to which the rocks of the canyon are painted in pink, yellow and green colors.
Town Jermajur, located in Artsakh at an altitude of 2200-2400 meters, is rich in natural hot springs. The healing traits of the royal mineral sources are known from ancient times. Jermajur is situated on the bank of Tartar River which begins from the slopes of the northern ranges of Artsakh and the southern ranges of Mravsar, at an altitude of 3158 meters. Water temperature is about 60 °C independently from the seasons of the year. All year long it is always possible to see people swimming in the basin the great healing power of which is similar to Karlovy Vary (Czech Republic) and Jermuk (Armenia).
In the southern part of Armenia in the Syunik region, there is a wonderful waterfall Shaki – the highlight of Armenian nature. It greets its visitors by the music of slowly falling water, which comes from an altitude of 18 meters. The energy of it is so strong that you won’t be able to hear any other voices or noises. This unique natural miracle is an incredible place to feel the harmony between human and nature.
In the Kotayk region of Armenia, there is a picturesque Garni Canyon which is famous for its unique natural monument called “the symphony of stones”. This site is a result of geological processes that led to the formation of symmetrical columns. Sometimes people call them «the big organ», and indeed, if you look at them from afar many of the cliffs seem like a giant organ. Almost perfect columns look as if they are specially carved by human hand, and not by nature.
Lake Sevan is one of the most beautiful miracles of Armenian nature. It is situated in the Gegharkunik region and is considered one of the world’s greatest high altitude fresh-water lakes. Due to its amazing beauty, the lake was called “The Pearl of Armenia”. And indeed this is not an exaggeration, just imagine: its azure waters shine under the sun rays and the picture is completed by wooded mountain ranges and hills. The territory around Sevan is a nice place for beach holiday lovers. Cool fresh water, sandy beaches, clean air, and tastiest specific fishes.
