Red rocks, the picturesque Amagu gorge, and the unique Noravank monastery complex on the top of the mountain, stunning, right? The bas-relief of one of the churches depicts God the Father himself! With His right hand, He blesses the Crucifixion, and with His left He holds Adam's head with a dove hovering over it, symbolizing the Holy Spirit. Panoramic photos taken from a bird's-eye view will remind you of this exciting journey for a long time.
When talented craftsmen live on such a beautiful land, it turns out such a miracle as the Tatev Monastery - an example of the harmony of nature and architecture, the manifestation of spirit and thought. Tatev, a monastery complex of the IX-XIII centuries, located on the steep cliffs of the Vorotan River Gorge, was once the largest center of philosophical and scientific thought in medieval Armenia. Not so long ago, the National Geographic magazine included the Tatev Monastery in the list of the 10 most picturesque tourist places in the world. A special pleasure is a flight to the monastery on the Wings of Tatev, the world's longest reversible cable car stretched over the gorge and hills at an altitude of 320 m: 12 minutes of contemplation of the dizzying landscapes of this part of Syunik.
Khndzoresk is one of the southern villages of the Syunik region. Historical Khndzoresk was considered the largest settlement in Eastern Armenia. Many believe that the root of the word Khndzoresk is an apple(khndzor). However, local residents state that the name was associated with deep gorges. That is, Khordzorsk, which later became Khndzoresk. The village has 4 churches. Cave dwellings of people have also been preserved. However, tourists are particularly attracted by the swinging bridge.
