DAY 5

Breakfast at the hotel in Goris. Trip to Tatev Monastery. You'll get to Tatev Monastery, the pearl of Armenia, literally through air by the longest in the world cable car (5.7 km), meantime enjoying incredibly beautiful mountain landscape. The Monastery was built between IX and XVIII centuries, but the construction reached its peak in XIII century. Amazingly beautiful and majestic Tatev Monastery is located at the edge of a cliff of a 500-800 meter deep canyon. However, you don’t feel fear standing at the edge of the abyss. On the contrary, you feel like taking off to observe a bird’s eye view and absorb all the vastness of the space and beauty.  Here is the 8th Wonder of World, the swinging pole – a hinge-based stone pillar, fenced and carefully guarded by thick stone walls. There are millions of columns, pillars, obelisks in the world, but only in Tatev a multi-ton pillar can swing at a mere touch of a hand! Using their fundamental knowledge in the field of astronomy, mathematics, physics, chemistry, philosophy, architecture and construction, our ancestors established this unique pillar, where the mysteries of the universe, the mysteries of that time, the secrets of the calendar have been encrypted. Going down the serpentine road toward the gorge, you find yourself on the Bridge of Devil with radon reservoirs and amazing colorful karst caves. Return to Goris.
