It’s already worth visiting Armenia because of its majestic and unique Mount Ararat. Ararat is a symbol of homeland for all Armenians and despite the fact that now it is not situated on the territory of Armenia, it is exactly from here that opens the most exciting and unforgettable view of this sacred mountain. According to the Bible, Noah’s Ark stopped at this mountain after the World Flood. After the water of the flood had completely gone, Noah came down and settled in the Ararat valley. That’s why Armenians have such respect to this Biblical Mount, and the climbing to it is considered a pilgrimage to the holy places. If you go up to the top of the Cascade, you’ll get a completely unforgettable view of both Mount Ararat and Yerevan. But still, for those who want to truly enjoy the magnificent views, it is best to go to the monastery of Khor Virap. The road will take you about one hour drive from Yerevan, but the memories will last a lifetime. It is difficult to move look away from the mountain, and being surrounded by such beauty, it will become clear why for Armenian Ararat is more than just a beautiful mountain.
