  • Great mountain, with amazing views! Ascent from Kari Lake to South Peak, down to the caldera and then steep ascent to the North Peak. And then back :-) It took us 10 hours.  more »
  • Swimming in a hot air balloon, ascent to Aragatz, passage of the 1st grotto under the Devil's Bridge. If you decide to go through the 2nd and 3rd grottoes, take a rope with you for insurance. All Armenia and its people liked it!
