Natural Wonders Of Lori

Yerevan-Dendropark-Lori Berd- Arevatsag Canyon

During this tour we will discover the wonderful nature of Lori Region. The first stop will be the arboretum of the region – Stepanavan Dendropark. It is a must-visit if you’re in the area or want to take part in a cool excursion. The Stepanavan Dendropark is located 30 minutes away from Vanadzor and it is the reason a lot of people find themselves in the city.  It was founded in 1931 and has hundreds of different species of trees and plants that have been grown in a 35-hectare area. Walking here is a great pleasure.

The next stop will be Lori Fortress. A place that one can find on many tour itineraries, that still remains an exceptional attraction in Northern Armenia is Lori Berd (Lori Fortress). One of the most notable highlights at the fortress are the two bathhouses. There is a large and a small one and they were built in the 11th-12th centuries. Another highlight of Lori Berd is the cross-stones. There are many basalt cross-stones on its territory and it has been concluded that they date back to the 11th-century based on the simplicity of the designs. 

Debed Canyon has numerous mind-blowing viewpoints and one of them is Arevatsag Canyon, a place that is often compared to tropical places in Southeast Asia with its dramatic rocks coming out of the water. The area’s nature is so stunning that you’ll undoubtedly need to stop and photograph. You’ll see the iconic rock (called Tsitsqar) alongside churches and fortress ruins, the Dzoraget River, and much more.
