My wife and I are planning to visit Armenia this spring. Her family is Armenian diaspora, and we would like to pay our respects and participate in observances for the genocide remembrance. Is there an organization that has any kind of organized listing of observances so we can plan? We of course know major dates and churches and monuments, but I haven't been able to come across any English-language description of memorials. And, that is, preferably less politically-driven events and more…
I've just returned from a fortnight in Armenia & N-K Rep. & thought I'd share some info with you lot out there.
The weather in the middle of November was surprisingly sunny, but cold at night. A lot of prices drop by up to 50% on 1st November, but some transport stops &, in some places, hotels shut up .
Most Western nationals don't need a visa now. You get a free entry stamp.

I am looking to visit Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan from early July 2015. I am trying to work out an approximate budget, based on being a budget traveller. If I selected cheap accommodation, ate at cheap restaurants, travelled by cheaper modes of transport, can anyone suggest a ballpark daily cost in USD (or EURO) for each of the three countries?
For example, based on their recent experience and travelling in a relatively budget type fashion?
Thank you so much for your advice! I…

i was just wondering if i can have a daytrip from Erevan to Stepanakert and still manage to come back the same day. unless obviously i am very lucky with hitch hiking, that would probably involve really slow buses, right? i'm planning to do that some time around the end of this month.
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…

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…
