Also known as Symphony of Stones

From Garni Temple to Garni Gorge which is also known as Symphony of Stones is much enjoyable when you’re hiking down the path but be careful if you’re following the trail from the offline guide of maps.me

It took me for a good 20-30 minutes to reach the place. The scenic view is breathtaking. There are some musicians alongside the gorge which is really fun to listen to but I don’t know the reason behind it.

The place is free so nothing to worry about. Enjoy the backdrop of the amazing Symphony of Stones.

Symphony of stones

It doesn’t take long to visit. You can see them from Garni Temple, but drive down and stand on the road below the symphony of stones. Mother Nature can be pretty magnificent.

Beautiful basalt columns ...
Sep 2019
Right below "Garni Temple's" breathtaking cliff, at 23kms East of Yerevan, you will find "Garni Gorge" and the "Basaltic Organ"! Beautiful basalt columns and structures that - at some points - look like were hand cut, so perfect they are! You can walk all the way down from "Garni Temple", or ride a 4WD vehicle with a local driver (that was what our group did). A new road was under construction while we were there. Be ready for awesome views and fantastic pictures to take home. Enjoy!

Amazing, must see!

Our tour group arrived at Garni Gorge in 4WD vehicles due to the rocky terrain to reach the place. There is no entrance fee. The basalt rock formation is so perfect that it's amazing, haven't seen anything like this before. The beautiful name, Symphony of the Stones, describes it very well.Don't miss it.

It is totally worth the war into the valley to see the basalt rocks, they are amazing. Some of the best I have seen. The walk is pleasant, down from the temple to the valley and up through the rocks and the village. Its was the best thing about armenia!

You can have three things in one: nice walk by the river; seeing amazing rock formations (Symphony of Stones) and see Garni temple high on the hill.

Could not have enough of that gorge - delayed my departure from that spot just to visit some restaurant with the glass floor over the valley - only for the experience and the view!!
