The trip will continue along the shore to reach Noratous, a village which is home to the largest collection of the Armenian Khachkars – stone steles engraved with a cross, designed to show the way to salvation. According to the legend, Hayk – the ancestor of all Armenians – ordered his people to decorate every single stone in Armenia, which is why you will see some 900 of these decorated stones, depicting various stories from different ages.

After Selim Pass you will continue the trip to Jermuk that is positioned within forests and mountains, on a little plateau, 2080 m above sea level; the plateau is partitioned into two parts by the Arpa river gorge. Jermuk is widely recognized with its curable water. Jermuk waters were reliable means of treatment of numerous illnesses for hundreds of years.

Jermuk has pretty a protracted history however the modern town was founded only in 1940, after the development of the first sanatorium. Nowadays Jermuk is popular with its modern and cozy sanatoriums.

On the way back to Yerevan, you will have a stop in “Hin Areni” winery and will taste the wide variety of armenian wines.
