The Trans-Caucasus mountains are beautiful. There are a number of mountain ranges associated and each has its own unique qualities. My favorite season is mid-late June, when everything is green. Alpine meadows abound with wild flowers and numerous critters. Have your camera ready, as you can scarcely put it down.

First of all, the Caucasian Mountains are almost entirely NOT in Armenia. In fact, there are 20 peaks taller than 4000 meters in the Caucasian mountains, and only ONE of those (Mt. Aragats) is in Armenia. And, Aragats is the shortest of the 20 peaks, topping out at just 4090 meters. If any country should claim to be the center... More

Yeah, it's the countryside of Armenia I guess? I don't know what they mean by this but the mountains are beautiful. Just drive north-east from Yerevan and you'll see beautiful sights

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...
