Additional Information:

_ Khor Virap: It is one of the most visited pilgrimage sites in Armenia. It stands before the snowcapped flanks of Mount Ararat offering a spectacular view of the mountain, the national symbol of Armenia: this monastery rests atop a little hill in an otherwise very flat Ararat Valley. You can make it out from the highway a few km away and it grows bigger as you turn off the highway and drive towards it. When you arrive you will be as close to Mt. Ararat as you can probably get in Armenia. It is huge and towers over Khor Virap on even hazy days. You can actually see the green belt along the Arax River which denotes the boundary with Turkey from the monastery and there are some military lookout posts around this area.
_ The Cave  Areni I: a substantial number Chalcolithic sites have been identified across the territory of modern Armenia. One of those is the cave  Areni I in the Vayots-Dzor Province.  Areni I represent the second half of the Chalcolithic, dating approximately between 4500 and 3400 BC.  Areni I cave complex was occupied during that same period for ritual purposes related to mortuary activities. The dry environment of the cave together with a stable temperature provided excellent conditions for the preservation of organic materials. 
Desiccated grains, fruits, textiles, leather, and even grass, which usually are not found at other sites, open a window onto an unknown world of perishable artefacts produced and used by Chalcolithic civilizations. Especially noteworthy is the discovery, deep in the cave, of the world’s oldest presently known wine pressing installation, dating back to around 4000 BC, and of the world’s oldest leather shoe, dated approximately to 3600 BC: this Leather Shoe is 1,000 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt and 400 years older than Stonehenge in the UK, has been found in the cave of Areni I.

_ Wine Tasting in Areni Wine Factory: The  Areni Wine Factory was founded in 1994 on the initiative of the Simonyan family in the village of Areni with the aim to continue and enrich winemaking traditions. In a short time, the company was able to expand its production capacity and to offer the customers two different types of high-quality wine. Grape, which is the queen of fruits, passes a long way before turning into a patriarchal wine. The high-quality raw material is important for getting a good wine, but one of the basic conditions for getting high-quality grapes is its proper care, that is carried out in different phases.

_ Jermuk: it's a leading Armenian spa city, which annually hosts not only a huge number of tourists but also a myriad of people from all over the world who go there for health and treatment purposes.
Jermuk is attractive for its fresh air, waterfalls, artificial lakes, walking trails, the surrounding forests and mineral water pools. The word " jermuk" means "geyser" in the Armenian language.
However, the town is mainly famous for its geysers. Other things to definitely see in Jermuk is Kechut Water Reservoir on Arpa River and the waterfall of Jermuk on Arpa river which has a height of 70 meters.
 The town is a modern centre of tourism and health services. Jermuk is also a major Chess centre, with numerous chess international tournaments scheduled in the town.
