Karabakh in The Guardian list of best adventure holidays

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Nagorno Karabakh Republic was included in The Guardian British daily’s list of best adventure holidays for 2015.

“In terms of destination one-upmanship, little can beat Nagorno Karabakh. Border skirmishes and ongoing wrangling for political control mean it is not for the faint-hearted, but the region has a lot to offer: mountain monasteries, archaeological sites, ancient cave settlements and areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Regent Holidays has a new 11-day group tour that starts and finishes in Yerevan, the Armenian capital, and includes seven days in Nagorno Karabakh (departs 21 September and 1 October, from £1,590 including flights). You can fly to Yerevan, via Kiev or Vienna, from around £225, but the British embassy can’t provide assistance in Nagorno Karabakh, so think carefully about travelling independently,” the daily reports.

Among The Guardian list for the best adventure holiday destinations were: desert exploring and kayaking in Djibouti; cycling in Burma; 2CV rallying in Spain; mountain trekking in Iraqi Kurdistan; canyoning in the Azores; horse-riding in Pyrenees; Surfing in Mozambique; sea kayaking in Fiji.
