About the project
A new challenge for nature and adventure lovers in Armenia: 500km in Armenia. A routine which passes through 8 regions from North to South, from Lore Fortress to Tatev Monastery. It passes through dozens of villages, different residences where you’ll meet people with different lifestyle and you’ll get the opportunity to try different dishes and drinks. We’ll have overnights in tents and village guesthouses, we will observe lakes and rivers, appear higher than the clouds and the stars will be the closest to us. The bonfire will always warm up us and in the mornings we’ll have herbal tea. And during all this time we’ll learn to use goods of nature, we’ll only pass the roads by walking through mountainous and valley trails, forests and gorges, archeological sights and ancient monuments lost in the nature.
After passing 500km we can surely say that we know Armenia from Lori to Syunik regions. This 28day trip will change our mentality, inner world and the attitude towards the nature.
The project of 500km in Armenia was created to explore the country which is often called an open-air museum. It was created to show the hidden treasures of the Armenian mountains and the tremendous shifts of nature.
The project will give new opportunities also for development of tourism especially in newly formed communities where this field has a great potential.
