What a fantastic place! Can't believe people lived here right up to 1960. 425 steps (I counted them) down, a walk across a swinging bridge (exciting) and a wander round the old village with cave dwellings, buildings and even a church. Warning: then 425 steps...More

This was something completely unique - a place, which was dwelled until quite recent times - a village made of caves, with full infrastructure. We were amazed to visit it, see old pictures, talk to a man who looks after the old church which used...More

I think two days is necessary and enough for Goris. Walking is possible if you have enough time and energy as I saw some people were walking the route but I strongly recommend hiring a car. I stayed in Yeghevnut Hotel and Mthnadzor Hotel Yeghevnut was a few hundred meters outside of the town but I had very good green views with a nice terrace. Mthnadzor was a newly built hotel inside the town and with a very good breakfast. The facilities were all new and very clean. I preferred the second one.
Wish a joyful trip,
