  • Getting in the car there is an adventure in the unspoiled nature. Along the way - narrow, trouble to cross voluminous cars in the opposite direction - sheep cow horses around camps of Yazidi Kurds dressed in red, torrents, eagles flying. You cross necai up to 3200 meters, a lake, an astronomical observatory

  • In May, when Yerevan was 27 at 6:00 a.m. in winter clothes together with a guide went to conquer the snowy southern peak of Aragats. It was very difficult, at every step to the knee you get stuck in the snow, instead of the planned 4 hours, our tour lasted more than 6. This ascent will definitely be one of the most vivid memories of my life
