Armenia’s Tsaghkadzor - a hub for adrenaline and extreme: MIR 24

PanARMENIAN.Net - Tsaghkadzor forests were a favorite hunting place for medieval Armenian rulers, but totally different entertainment options have today surfaced to replace the "royal pleasures", MIR 24 says in a video report about the resort town, providing five reasons to take a trip to Armenia.

As the first reason, the report cites the zipline flights which have gained popularity in Armenia in the past few years. “The first zipline appeared in Tsaghkadzor a year ago and was built on the slope of a gorge,” it says.

“Tsaghkadzor is a city of adrenaline and extreme. Every year tens of thousands of tourists come here to test their nerves. During the flight, you enjoy the beautiful view of the gorge, the mountains, the monastic complex and dozens of hotels in the resort town. The length of the cable is almost half a kilometer, while the return journey is even longer - 630 meters above the canyon."

The second reason for visiting Tsaghkadzor is Mount Teghenis where you can reach using the cable car.

You can go skiing in Tsaghkadzor: "Some people come here just to take a walk and play. But usually tourists go to Tsaghkadzor for adrenaline. In total, there are about 30 ski tracks for beginners and for those who are not afraid of frenzied speed and curve turns. Also, there is a special snowmobile track here."

The report also recommends visiting the monastery of Kecharis, which was built in the early 11th century, as well as the House-Museum of Orbeli brothers.
