Tsaghkadzor Ropeway Tours

Tsaghkadzor is a popular resort town in the center of Armenia, about an hour outside of the capital of Yerevan. Founded in the 3rd century, Tsaghkadzor derives its name from the Armenian word for “valley of flowers.” Located on the southeastern slope of Mount Teghenis, Tsaghkadzor developed as a major spa town during Soviet times and was home to the Olympic Sports Complex, opened in 1967 to train Soviet athletes for the Olympic Games. After Armenia gained its independence in the 1990s, it was redeveloped into a winter resort town centered around its ski resort. 

Tsaghkadzor’s ski resort was fully modernized in the mid-2000s and features a series of four chair lifts known as the Tsaghkadzor Ropeway that take skiers and snowboarders to the top of Mount Teghenis in 40 minutes.

Beyond the resort, Tsaghkadzor is home to the Senator Royale Casino, one of the largest entertainment complexes in the country, as well as the Kecharis Monastery, one of the most important religious sites in Eastern Armenia. Founded in the early 11th century, it was reconstructed in 2001. Visitors may also enjoy the House-Museum of the Brothers Orbeli, a museum dedicated to Ruben, Joseph and Levon Orbeli, three prominent Armenian scientists.

Practical Info

Tsaghkadzor is located about 50 kilometers northeast of the capital of Yerevan, off the M4 highway that leads to Lake Sevan. Driving or hiring a car or share taxi is the best way to get there from Yerevan.
