Stunning architecture and nature
Apr 2021 • Solo
The frescoes, the carvings, the views. It's an amazing spot to visit. The walk up to the monastery is a small hurdle that's worthy of the rewards.

hard to find

You'll definitely miss it if you don't have gps. There's no paved road leading up to it, you can either park on the side of the main road or drive up a bit until you reach the railway; from there continue on foot hiking through the houses and the pigs. A fun adventure for sure.

Ruined monastery with frescoes
May 2018 • Friends
It is a steep 15-20 minute climb from the road. Its currently being restored and the frescoes are preserved with a temporary roof over them. Its a nice spot to visit as the tour buses don't come here.

Another World Heritage site of great interest
Oct 2017 • Family
A mixture of churches of varying ages dating back to the C10th. Wonderful carved porch and ancient frescoes in the interior. The site, up a steep hill, provides a panoramic view of the Debden valley.

village
Jun 2017
Tsaghkashat is a village in Lori province, located on the slope of Srblis mountain; the village is surrounded with forests and and is considered to be one of the most naturally beautiful places in Armenia. Mining water spring plenty of fruit trees and bushes of berries are spread around the village, which can be used by the visitors in free of charge. As the road to Tsaghcashat is currently in bad condition till now few people've known about the village or gone there, but from this year hiking and horseback riding tours are organised between Haghpat and Tsaghkashat by local guides who know english and other foreign languages.

One of interesting places in Lori. You can get to it only on foot.It is not far from of road but you have to overcome steep height , part of them by steps.If you have foot ache or heart problems I wouldn't advice you to try climb up to the monastery

Holy spirit
Jul 2015 • Friends
This ancient monastery was build by monks inside the mountain, its chronological of 12th century, one of the ancients in Armenia. The paintings of saints are still excellent, with very beautiful colors. Visit this monastery, you won't be disappointed. Really thrilling place. There is one caution I must tell: if you are going with little children (5-14 years old ),be sure to keep them near you,because there are really dangerous rocks.
