Hello all, i am visiting Armenia for just a few days in late August and am thinking of heading to Mount Aragats to climb it. Whilst i am an experienced 'walker', im not used to climbing so high (highest ive been is 2500m)
I have a few questions:
1) is it best to take a guide, is this possible, where from?
2) should i allow for any acclimitisation, or should i be fine if go slowly and do it in a day?
3) Are there clear paths or do i need a special OS hiking map?
Thanks, and any other advice much appreciated
I'm off to Yerevan tomorrow morning and am wondering what to pack. Are the Armenians particularly conservative? Do I need to cover shoulders and knees or are summer clothes like singlet tops, shorts, strapless dresses OK?
I'll bring a pashmina just in case as I always do but I don't want to bring completely the wrong thing!
We are staying in Yerevan, walking around and also doing a day trip to the Monasteries and Lake Sevan.
I am planning to go to Yerevan Next Week with lowest price for my trip
how can I go to Waterworld and Sevan Lake by bus ?
I will be in Yerevan from 17-31 March 2012. I will be teaching in the afternoons and early evenings. My accommodations have been arranged but I would appreciate any suggestions on places to eat at anytime and things to do in the mornings which would help me to have the most genuine memories of Armenia. I think that the middle Saturday and Sunday of my stay will also be free. I might also do some late evening outings but I am no longer the guy who tries to go non-stop around the clock.
How accessible is Mt. Ararat?
The only other things I know about Armenia are that I bought the home in which I currently live from a very nice Armenian couple and that the Armenian people were victims of one of the most horrific genocides in history about 100 years ago.
Thanks for any help!!!
Hello dear VT-friends,
Since I've changed my mind (I switched from Yerevan to Budapest).
I would like to thank all of you for responding.
I'm still doubting anyway. But money and schedule are not in the right position to do both...Do you people suggest the best: Budapest or Yerevan? Looking for culture and ancient architecture!
My schedule will be: Traveldates from 18 until 20 octobre 2011. Maybe there are some nice festivals or so. Looking for a fancy place to have a nice diner as well at the 19th of octobre. Please let me know and thanks a lot again! I'll post a message on the Budapest forum as well ;-)
