I see that this attraction is listed under Yerevan, but we felt that the best viewing of these pointed, relatively young block mountains is from Mestia, Georgia. The highest among them are snow-covered all year around. The roads are terrible and I would not recommend travel here in the winter months. Some places require a 4-wheel drive vehicle. The best...

The Caucasian Mountains in Armenia are also called the Lesser Caucasian Mountains because they are not as high as those you will find in Georgia and Russia. Nevertheless, this fact does not diminish their beauty and grandeur. Some of the peaks of the Lesser Causcasian Mountains are covered with snow and Mount Ararat's snowy summit can be seen all year...

As winer is close, all ski lovers are welcome to visit Tsaghkadzor ski resort. It was accommodated for Soviet athletes to prepare for Winter Olympics 88. Nowadays it is renovated and ready to host skiers from all over the world. @ArmDesk

The most stunning thing about my Caucasus trip was ... the Caucasus. The mountainside is definitely the most impressive one after the Andes, I find. Shadows and light change rapidly so that after every bend you can see new picture-perfect hills and rocks and on (and saying this: I'm actually more of a Sea person ...). You just have to... More

The mountains in Armenia is the so called lesser Cacasian mountains.The tallest mountains you find between Russia and Georgia. The lesser Caucasian mountains are lower but the mountains are not less beautiful. From Armenia you can also see the grand Mount Ararat, more than 5300 meters above sea level.

Wonderful, white and peaceful mountains, full of small beautiful corners, frozen trees, iced rivers and silent birds... A place to enjoy nature like no other.
