VAYOTS DZOR

Two hours from Yerevan, on the very south of Armenia, with a territory of 2308 km is located one of the oldest Armenian regions – Vayots Dzor.  Once teeming with forests, the upper slopes of the region are blanketed in alpine meadows, seas of grass and wildflowers in the spring that turn into shades of burnt amber in the summer. Located on the crossroad of different cultures for centuries, the region carries the trace of ancient medieval and modern periods full of legends, traditions, diversity of cuisine, as well as natural and historical heritage.

Hiking and camping aficionados will enjoy the unforgiving terrain and relative remoteness of the trails that lead to abandoned villages, sites of medieval and Bronze Age ruins, and wildlife spots.  Vayots  Dzor offers a wealth of discoveries and for those willing to explore the list is endless.
