The little monastery is located in the forest. There is a nice trail to access the location. It is surely possible to go by car (4x4) but hopefully it is gated. The walk is really nice, specially in autumn

There is an 1 hour walk from the town to the path that goes to the monastery. From that monastery another path leads to the Jukhtakvank monastery, crossing the main road, about 20 minutes walk. In Matosavank monastery you will feel the history, although Jukhtakvank...More
