Welcome to Aras River Valley
A trip through the sublime mountain scenery of the Aras River Valley should not be missed. Rarely in the world can you travel along such a sensitive international frontier so steeped in history and riven by geology. Ragged peaks loom menacingly above the twisting road, while ruined fortresses crumble on forgotten hillsides and seemingly abandoned watchtowers scan the opposite riverbanks. Ancient bridges lead to nowhere, stepped villages hide in the clefts and abandoned stations wait forlornly for trains that never come.
