Sharing the experience about skiing on Aragatz mountain

If you like skiing and plan some kind of wild ski-tour to Armenia, than the best choice is Aragatz mountain. You can drive up to the Stone lake (3200m) and stay in the meteo-station buliding. It is a nice hut with everything U may need. The price is from 3000 to 4000 AMD (8 - 10$ ) per day. There U can also find snowcats to drive nearly up to the top. But for me the best choice is to walk up to the top (3888m, 7km), but for that U need skins for the skies or snowshoes. From the top there are…

Short Nagorno Karabakh Trip Reports

(New username for an old member of the forum)

Warning: No practical information on public transport or accommodation!

I got a NK visa in Yerevan for AMD 3000. Painless, but I was told there that areas such as Füzuli and Qubadlı were off-limits 'due to our [Nagorno Karabakh] army being there'....

I was also told I could only enter at the Aghuli Border post on the main Goris - Stepanakert Highway.

I am driving my own 4x4. No special permission is required to take a car into NK (although it is…

Gyumri to Tbilisi

Hi!
We are a group of 6 who will be travelling around Armenia and Georgia in late October/early November.
Among other places we want to visit Gyumri. There is a train leaving Yerevan for Gyumri at 08:00. We intend to stay in Gyumri for a couple of hours and then continue to Tbilisi at around 3pm the same day. Is there any public transport in the afternoon between two places?
And if we rent a taxi to take us to Tbilisi, how difficult would it be to find one and what price should we expect?

Private tour in Armenia

My wife and I spent four days touring Armenia with Levon (levzar@mail.ru) and couldn't have been more satisfied with this English-speaking, professional, cautious, friendly, honest, generous man. He picked us up at the Georgia/Armenia border at Bagratashen-Sadakhlo and was the perfect traveling companion. He was completely responsive to our requests (even as far as putting together an MP3 of our music requests) and budget and the only deviations from pre-arrangements worked out to our advantage.…

Yerevan to Tabriz (Iran) - step by step - HELP

Hi I will be making the journey from Yerevan to Tabriz. I plan to start the trip down on the 30th Sept.

Can someone recommend a good route towards the border, and then crossing? I don't want to take a single long bus journey (15 hours!!!).

I would like to stop in villages on the way. I don't need to see ALL the tourist sites and monasteries. I am more interested in people and culture so would like to get a feel for Armenia through it's towns and scenery on the way, taking about 2-3 days to…
