Private Tour in Syunik Region of Armenia
Discover Armenia! A fascinating tour to the old astronomical observatory Karahunj, Devil's Bridge, and the historic cave city Khndzoresk in a luxurious car with premium service. The ancient astronomical observatory Karahunj is located in the Syunik region, near the city of Sisian, at an elevation of 1800 meters. According to many reports, the complex of 223 stones, also known as Zorats Karer (Stone Army), has a history of more than 5,000 years and is strikingly comparable to Stonehenge in England.
The Devil's Bridge is a 30-meter natural bridge that leads into a network of magnificent rock caverns (entrance down into the caves only with equipment). The attraction is located in the deep part of the Vorotan River Gorge, near the Tatev ropeway (about 800 meters). The ancient cave city Khndzoresk, which means Apple, is located 15 kilometers from Goris in the Syunik region, near the hamlet of the same name. This unusual city is built inside rock caverns and is practically impregnable, and it has been a strategic location of this region for Armenian troops for many ages. A swinging bridge connects the hill to the city above the gorge and creates an incredible landscape. In the city, you will get the opportunity to explore the historical cave houses where families lived, the school, and the old Church, as well as take rare and make images for remembrance.
