Top Descriptions

Touted as being the little Switzerland of by the local inhabitants, the well positioned (though somewhat run down) mountain town of Dilijan may not quite live up to that comparison but it certainly has its own charm. Set at a comfortable 1,500m, surrounded in every direction by and within easy reach of some excellent monasteries, Dilijan makes for an great place to break up the journey south to and or north to in via either Ijevan or . Just don’t expect for modern facilities here, although the new UWC Dilijan College is changing the situation somewhat.

Top Tips

It’s worth visiting both and during your stay in Dilijan. The is also particularly rewarding and shouldn’t be missed.
Definitely visit while you’re here; it’s probably the best restaurant in town.
Two ruined monasteries are an easy walk from town. The will guide you to both of them.
Watch out for the taxi drivers here. Some of them can be quite dishonest and a little too persistent.
