Private Transfer to Khor Virap Monastery
Enjoy a beautiful day to visit one of the most important pilgrimage places in Armenia, the Monastery of Khor Virap. From where you are going to have a wonderful view of the Holy Mount of Ararat, the place where Noah's arch landed. It is a short trip which will take about 2.5-3 hours. Your driver will pick you up from your hotel/apartment in Yerevan and drive to the monastery. The drive will take about 45 minutes, then you can spend there about 1-1.5 hours. Then you will drive back to Yerevan.
About 1 hour of driving through the agricultural heartland of Armenia, Ararat Plain offering fantastic scenery of fruit orchards, endless vineyards at the foothills of Ararat Mountain, you visit Khor Virap Monastery, the most sacred pilgrimage destination in Armenia not only because it’s the only place in Armenia where you’ll get the best view of the biblical Mount Ararat (5165m, the place where the Noah's Ark rested after the Great Flood) within Armenian borders, but this is where St. Gregory the Illuminator was imprisoned for 13 years by the King Tiridates III for preaching Christianity. Guided by the remote majesty of the biblical Mount Ararat, where the Noah’s ark had landed, we explore the site, its underground chambers, elegant chapels and are captivated by the ascetic atmosphere of the site.
