Khor – Virab – Areni winery – Noravank monastery – Jermuk



Visit Khor Virap Monastery. To this day you can visit the underground chamber where St. Gregory the Illuminator, the first Armenia’s Patriarch, was imprisoned for 13 years before curing King Trdat III of a disease. This caused the conversion of the king and Armenia into the first officially Christian nation in the world in the year 301. Its location, near the closest point to Mount Ararat within Armenian borders, offers a spectacular view of the mountain, the national symbol of Armenia. Then we will drive to Areni Winery, degustation and presentation of local wine. Areni Winery, degustation and presentation of local wine. Areni grapes have been made into wine since historical time. In fact, this region finds its mention in the bible where it is mentioned that winemaking dates back to the time when forefather Noah planted a grape along the slopes of Mount Ararat. This dark skinned grape is known for its ability to make a full bodied red wine. 

Proceed to Noravank Monastery (13-14th centuries), an architectural gemstone nestled among brick-red cliffs, just above a deep gorge. Visit Jermuk and see the amazing Waterfall of Jermuk called “Mermaid’s hair”.
