Itinerary

DAY 1 July 28th
"From the ship to the ball!"

 Early in the morning on Saturday we arrive to the Yerevan airport and while the city is still asleep, we store up an excellent Armenian coffee and advance towards the mysterious rock monastery Geghard. The monastery was founded presumably in the 4th century AD, in the rocks, and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Previously, the Great Spear of Destiny, by which the Roman legionary Longinus pierced the crucified Christ, was stored in the monastery of Geghard. The place is filled with powerful ancient energy. After leaving the monastery of Geghard, we will visit an equally spectacular structure - the pagan temple of the god Mihra in Garni, built in the 2nd century BC and the ruins of the impregnable fortress of Vokhchaberd. Leaving the temple, we will go down the path down to the rocks, where we can contemplate the lava stiffened in the form of a stone body - a spectacle that amazes with its grandeur and magnificence! In the rapidly approaching twilight, the view of the rocky temples among the snowy peaks of the Caucasus will surely make an indelible impression on you. After this wonderful action, we are heading to the best hotel in the village of Garni, where we will be offered a traditional Armenian dinner of fresh vegetarian dishes, and we will conduct an excellent introductory yoga practice!
