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.

The hike is easy,... More

Fantastic view of Kazbek mountain and Gergeti Church. The Military Highway condition is poor and it is tiring to get to Kazbek, but once you get there you feel all the magnificence of this area. I will definitely visit this area one more time :)

stunning mountains, beautiful scenery, amazing variety of bird life and the most friendly and helpful people. We travelled through the whole country on a car rally so got to see a lot of the area, I was very pleasantly surprised by Armenia as a whole, it is an amazing country, full of rich culture, history and a million monasteries.

The "Caucasian Mountains" is the geographical big mistake regarding that places... Armenia is not Caucas (nighter central nor southern). Geographically Armenia located on the Armenian Highland.
