Getting there & away

There are three main stands for onward transport. The old avtokayan is on the highway into town (where the highway continues to Yerevan in one direction and Stepanakert in the other direction). From here shared taxis travel to Yerevan for AMD3000. There are marshrutkas to Yerevan (AMD2500, 7.30am, 9am, 10am, noon and 5pm). Transport to Stepanakert (AMD3000) originates in Yerevan – four or five marshrutkas pass here each day; the 12.50pm seems to be a pretty regular service. A taxi to Stepanakert, 104km away, will cost AMD10, 000.

Marshrutkas to Kapan (AMD1300, two hours, 9am, noon and 3pm) depart from the corner of Komitas and Syuniki.

Buses for nearby villages, including Tatev (AMD500, 3pm) leave from the shuka on Syuniki. A taxi to Kapan costs AMD10, 000. A day trip to Tatev costs AMD8000.
