If you want to feel the power and energy of mountains, this is the right place to be. every second spent here is worth. absolutely must visit place with memories to cherish. The cable car takes you through the nicest gorge. I wish to visit this place very soon again!

"Wings of Tatev" is a modern 5,7 km aerial cable car connecting the village of Halidzor to awesome "Tatev Monastery". Its construction ended in 2010 and it is the longest non-stop double track cable car in the world! The ride takes 12 minutes (much better than driving 40 minutes on a mountain road) and gives the sensation of flying over the gorge of River Vorotan, with amazing views of the valley below, its villages and old abandoned buildings. "Wings of Tatev" is a non-profit organization and all its revenues are invested in the restoration of "Tatev Monastery" and in the development of local communities. Unmissable! Enjoy!

As per other reviews, this cable car journey to Tatev Monastery holds an international record. The views from the cable car are spectacular. Additionally, the service is punctual and efficient. Being at the head of the queue going up to the monastery is an advantage as you can secure a position on the left hand side of the car, or be at the front. This places you to get the best views. Usually, each journey is crowded. A pre-bought ticket is the best advice, and it also provides you with an exit time up to the Monastery. The overall trip takes about 15 minutes, maximum.
