  • Explore nature off the beaten path in Kapan, Armenia

    2010-05-06

    International travelers tend to be very specific in what they want to see and experience when heading abroad. This is why so many vacationers head to the same destinations year-in and year-out. Yet some travelers like to explore new and different locations that offer unique and subtle thrills and experiences. For these people, a trip to Kapan, Armenia, can be quite the experience.

    Located in the southern portion of the former soviet republic, Kapan is a beautiful and small city hidden among nature at the foot of a mountain range. In the summer and spring, the land is covered in lush greenery from tall trees, with local farms and dense forests littering the landscape.

    While it lacks the grandeur and presence of more famous European cities, Kapan has a unique personality that makes it a fun destination in its own right. Travelers can spend the day playing at the local amusement park, hike to the mysterious and secluded Vahanavank Monastery or attempt to tackle nearby Khustup Mountain.

    The area is also home to the Shikahogh State Preserve, a pristine forest that features local wildlife, epic views of the Zangezur Mountain Range and the enchanting Mtnadzor Canyon.
