Aghveran became a favorite vacation spot in Soviet times. The beauty of the local picturesque nature and crystal-clear air allow escaping from everyday life and city rush. Aghveran is simply an ideal resort for those who prefer a calm, measured rest in unity with nature. Aghveran continues to be a popular tourist destination today as well. The city has many modern hotels where you can spend your vacation in the most comfortable conditions. What are the main attractions worth seeing when arriving in Aghveran?
Of course, the main attraction of Aghveran is its almost untouched, virgin nature. Tsaghkunyats Mountains are located near the resort and give the landscape a special local flavor. Relief slopes in the warm season are covered with abundant alpine green, and in the cold season, a snow-white hat crowns the mountain.
The most beautiful mountain lake is located on Tsakhkunyats ridge at an altitude of 2450 meters. The unique pond is fueled only by melt and rainwater. The water in Tsaghkunyats Lake is so clean and transparent that on a clear day you can see in detail every pebble at the bottom of the reservoir.
Natural Mineral Springs
Another attraction of Aghveran are the natural mineral springs, from ancient times known for their healing properties. Therefore, rest here can always be combined with wellness treatments. Mineral waters, as well as thermal baths, are successfully used for diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, gynecological problems and the prevention of various types of allergies.
“Park Resort Aghveran”
This hotel can also be considered a kind of attraction. It is located on the territory of the city, but at the same time is surrounded by dense forest green. If you come here, you will get the feeling that this corner of nature is somewhere far away from modern civilization.
“Arthurs Aghveran Resort”
Another unusual hotel, which is ideal for both family and corporate holidays. “Arthurs Aghveran Resort” is located directly on the slopes of Tsaghkunyats Mountains. There are simply amazing views from the windows of the rooms and from the open terraces. By the way, you can come here to rest in winter, as Aghveran is a great place for practicing ski sports.
“Panda Park” is a great place for outdoor activities with family or friends. Adventure Rope Park is designed for various levels of physical fitness – from beginners to experienced athletes. Time spent here will certainly give you a dose of adrenaline and many vivid memories.
Another plus of Aghveran is that with all its solitude, it is very close to the capital and other significant places of Armenia. You can reach Yerevan in an hour, so you can always visit the capital, visit museums or just take a walk along the city streets if you are bored in silence. From Aghveran, you can also easily reach Lake Sevan, see the local ancient monastery Sevanavank and relax by the water on a sandy beach.
