Many tourist destinations are marketed heavily creating large flows of tourists. This definitely worsens the overall experience. Thankfully, there are still many wonderful sights out there that are waiting to be discovered and adored.
Tatev Monastery is one of the pearls of ancient civilization that is standing almost intact from 9th century to amaze the world with its spectacular views and wisdom that is still present in the thick walls.
In just 12 minutes the world record holding, modern ropeway of TaTever will take you from the parking lot to the Monastery. It is an interesting mixture of old and new, but always incredible.
