Mount Aragats is a four peaked volcano massif in Armenia. Its northern summit, at 4.090 m above sea level, is the highest point in the Armenian Highlands. In the slopes of Mount Aragats there is Lake Kari (Stone Lake). It is located 3.190 m above the sea level and has a perimeter of 1.150 m. The lake appeared from ice formations. It is surrounded by snow most of the time and that is why water is rather cold.
On the way we will visit the Armenian Alphabet Monument. The complex was built in 2005, on the 1600th anniversary of the creation of Armenian alphabet. The complex includes sculptures of 39 letters of Armenian alphabet. All the letters and statues are made of Armenian tufa. Armenian alphabet was created by Mesrop Mashtots in 405 in order to make the Bible accessible to Armenians and spread Christianity.
The last destination will be the fortress of Amberd. It is a 7th-century fortress located 2.300 meters above sea level on the southern slopes of the Mount Aragats. The name translates to "fortress in the clouds" in Armenian. The site includes a rich variety of buildings (church, chapel, baths, walls, gates, etc.), in a spectacular position defined by good natural defenses.
