Amberd Fortress, perched on Mount Aragats in Armenia, dates back to the 7th century. It served as a strategic outpost and offers panoramic views of the region, showcasing Armenia’s historical and architectural legacy.
Located on Mount Aragats, Lake Kari is an alpine gem at 3,190 meters. Popular among hikers, it provides a serene escape with crystal-clear waters and stunning mountain vistas.
Invented by Saint Mesrop Mashtots in 405 AD, the Armenian alphabet consists of 39 letters. One of the oldest alphabets still in use, it is a vital cultural symbol, preserving Armenian language, literature, and identity.

Stop 1

There is a unique monument of the Armenian alphabet on the western slope of Mount Aragats, in Artashavan village. The sculptural group is located directly under the open sky and includes 39 elements repeating the shape of the letters of the Armenian alphabet. The figures of letters, almost reaching the height of human growth, are carved from local tuff in different shades: pink, orange, gray, black. The letters are also expertly decorated with carved ornaments.

Kari lake

Stop 2

Our next stop will be lake Kari. An ancient legend says that once the mountains Ararat and Aragats stood nearby and were loving sisters. But once they argued, failing to decide which of them is taller and more beautiful. The wise Maruta mount tried to reconcile the sisters, but all her attempts were in vain. Desperate, she cursed them: the mountains were separated from each other. From grief on the top of Aragats mount a whole lake of tears appeared. The lake still exists today, and its name is “Kari Lich”, which is translated as “Stone Lake”. The lake is located quite high on the slope of Mount Aragats. For most of the year, snow does not melt here, so the water in Kari Lake is always very cold. It is located at an altitude of 3200 meters and most of the time is surrounded by snow, so the water in the lake is quite cold.


Stop 3

In the end we will visit Amberd fortress, which reflects the severity and splendor of the surrounding mountains. The medieval architecture monument was constructed as a secure fortress and later became the residence of the Pahlavuni noble Armenian family. It has been built of huge slabs of basalt. The walls are up to 4 m thick. Archeologists were amazed when they found countless underground passages here. Visitors also can see another interesting sight next to Amberd fortress – Vahramashen church, which was constructed by Armenian commander Vahram Pahlavuni.
