There are a couple of younger drivers and cars that might be preferable, but then again you might feel obliged to help out the persistent old man with his beaten up Lada.

                            UNESCO-listed Geghard Monastery is one of the most popular tourist sites in , and it’s not hard to see why. In a land of many ancient churches and monasteries, this 4th-century example really stands out as a memorable and worthwhile experience. Atmospheric, well situated at the end of the Azat River Gorge, and partially carved out of the mountain, it’s hard not to find Geghard an evocative site. As well as the main temple complex with its somewhat unique wall carvings and shadowy/smoky interior, there is a cave temple to explore with excellent acoustics and numerous fine examples of khachkars dotted about.
