Khndzoresk

There would hardly be anyone who would not agree with the statement that Armenia is more attractive and beautiful with its undiscovered miracles. Khndzoresk village, located in the South-East of Armenia, in Syunik, 249km far from Yerevan city, is not an exception. Khndzoresk is famous for its ancient cave dwellings, which have been used up to the 1950s. From ancient times people lived in these rocky hills, constructing artificial shelters and places for food storage. According to the legend, Khndzoresk, being situated in the deep canyon, was called “Khor Dzor” (“Deep Canyon”) or “Khordzoresk”, which was later renamed as “Khndzoresk”. Another breathtaking wonder is the 160-meter long swinging bridge of Khndzoresk, which was opened thanks to the efforts of Khndzoresk residents. The 160-meter long bridge, 36 meters above the ground connects the two sides of the village, the so-called old and new Khndzoresk. The view of the gorge from the bridge is splendid and it’s better to see it once than to hear about it a thousand times.
