Tavush





All Images

Tavush Marz in the northeastern corner of Armenia offers a wonderful range of mountain and forest scenery sprinkled with beautifully sited historic monasteries. Dilijan, nearest point of entry to the Marz, is only 90 minutes from Yerevan by good car via Lake Sevan, and is probably the best place to stay for an extended exploration, though there are hotels in Ijevan, Berd and Noyemberian as well. Mountainous and forested, Tavush is home to many historic Armenian monasteries, churches, castles, forts, and khachkars. The noteworthy Goshavank, Makaravank, and the Haghartsin monasteries are all located in this region. Goshavank was founded as Nor-Getik by Mkhitar Gosh, an Armenian scholar and priest who wrote civil and canon law that was used in Armenia proper as well as in the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia, and was later used by the Armenians who lived in Galicia under Polish rule. Haghartsin was built between the 10th and 14th centuries under the patronage of the Bagratuni Dynasty. The mountain road from Chambarak to Berd is as starkly beautiful as any in the Mediterranean, and a splendid track traverses high summer pastures from Yenokavan to Noyemberian.

I learned about this place while I was writing a custom essay writing. It is well known for its mountains. The most part of its territory is situated 800-1,000 m above sea level. The territory relief consists of rocky hillsides covered with the bright green carpet of Alpine meadows; Tavush is sometimes referred to as a little Armenian Switzerland.
