Tatev

Tatev Monastery is a masterpiece of confluence of ingenious medieval architecture and fabulous nature of Armenia. It is a 9th-century monastery located on a large basalt plateau near the Tatev village in Syunik Province in southeastern Armenia. The monastic ensemble stands on the edge of a deep gorge of the Vorotan River.
Visitors can reach Tatev Monastery by car or small bus through the gorge, or by cable car “Wings of Tatev” - the world's longest non-stop double track aerial tramway.  It spans 5.7 kilometers in a single journey lasting approximately 11 minutes, gliding up to 330 meters above the Vorotan River Gorge carrying 25 passengers.
