Khor Virap – Shaki Waterfall – Tatev monastery
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 Shaki Waterfall is situated in Armenia, above Lake Shaki. The altitude is 18 m. The waterfall is located 3 km North-West of Sisian city, in gorge of the River Vorotan. Visit the miraculous monastery of Tatev, which is a formidable monastic complex founded in the 9th century. It’s the biggest monastery in Armenia. It’s located on a rocky peninsula more than 100 meters above the Vorotan River, where you can reach by the longest cable-car in the world called “Wings of Tatev” (5,7km) built by the Swiss in 2010. According to tradition the relics of the Apostles, Sts. Peter and Paul, were placed under the dome’s supporting pillars.
