The bad thing about this site is the nu,ber of tourists... Even in the low season, the site will be crowded, as it´s so clsoe from Yerevan! Very beautiful monastery, where you can still see the monks in their daily lives.

The Monastery of Geghard is breathtaking, both in its architecture and in the surrounding landscape. There weren't so many activities to do there, but you can, and should, spend an hour or two there just to take in the beauty.

Armenia is such a discovery, because the place is full of very unique and amazing sites, unknown by the majority and visited by only a handful of tourist. The Monastery of Geghard is a very early construction is a great natural position in between mountains...More

The monastery is located near the famous Garni Temple, so make sure if you visit Garni you also spend some time to visit this place. The monastery itself is unique, as half of the building is actually carved on a mountain. I recommend you to...More

1. My legs are not really strong. I don't like climbing staircase. I feel my knees a little bit painful after climbing down staircase continuously for 10 minutes. Is it suitable for me to go to the monastery of Gerard? 2. Is there any bus from the city to this Monastery? Thanks for your advice
