I have just visited in May 2018 Dadivank Monastery in the north eastern part of the largely unrecognized country that its inhabitants call Artsakh. Anyway, I rented a two-wheel drive Ford Focus in Yerevan, Armenia and drove it north from Yerevan and then east along...More

Doing a tour of the area last week we were happy to have our 4X4 to get to Dadivank Monastery as the road is rough, probably could have made it through with a regular vehicle but may have bottomed out in a couple of places....More

The Monastery in Dadivank is a very impressive complex of churches and other clerical buildings that were built over a span of more than 1300 years. Now, many of the building are damaged by the time or destroyed. But since it is such an unique...More

Dadivank is one the most beautiful corners and amazing destination in Artsakh Republic. Previously the road to the monastery was in bad conditions which made very difficult for tourists to reach it. Nowadays the road both from Stepanakert and from Vardenis is in very good...More

Me and a friend hired a taxi in Stepanakert who took us here (friend spoke some Russian, which was a BIG help). It's a long drive, and the last 10-20 miles of road is pretty rough, but you CAN make it WITHOUT 4 wheel drive....More

Not easy to get to, but worth the effort. Views are amazing, though there's no organized guides or tours once you get there, at least this time of year. Road from Drombon/Martakert is great and newly paved up until the last 5 miles. Just beware...More

It was not an easy trip, but Dadivank rewarded us fully. It’s an amazing site, perhaps one of the most impressive Armenian spiritual/religious sites I’ve ever seen! Very much worth the effort!

It's a long bumpy dirtroad from Stepanakert, it will take about three hours to reach Dadivank Monastery but the place is worth the long journey (with a 4wd vehicle). We made the journey from our hotel near Gandzasar which helped us spare an hour. It's...More
