Travel to Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh)
Rocky mountains. A tumultuous history. The adventure of your lifetime…
Upon meeting a seasoned traveller, any Armenian is sure to ask whether he’s ever been to Nagorno Karabakh. Even though Mount Ararat, Lake Sevan and Syunik Province provide truly spectacular sightseeing, everyone agrees that the ancient region of Artsakh (the old Armenian name for Nagorno Karabakh) is by far the most beautiful nook of the Armenian Plateau.
For centuries this land, on the fringe of the oldest Christian civilization, has defended its faith and independence. Passions continue to run high in diplomatic and military circles, but the reality of Karabagh is anything but drab military monotony. Since Karabakh isn’t swarmed with tourists, it’s easy to experience sincere hospitality here, and to treasure each day of life and adventure.
Imagine: in the early morning the sun rises over wooded ridges, soft mists linger above monastery domes while horses graze in nearby meadows. Somewhere steam rises over a rocky hot spring, and a samovar appears on the table to fill yet another cup of tea while your host begins another fascinating story—a story about the long and difficult road to peace.
