Don’t miss it if you are visiting Garni Gorgeous volcanic mountains in Garni town in Armenia. You can reach it by walking or riding an SUV 4*4 vehicle. Very interesting to see symphony stones in Garni how beautifully these rocks are designed by nature.

After visiting the Garni temple the guide and I walked through the Garni gorge. The landscape is simply stunning. The way the stone was shaped after vulcanic forces is stunning. It is a nice little walk and you might want to stay on the path...More

This gorge lies behind the Garni Temple. I’d say it’s more of an attraction than the temple itself. It’s a good place to chill and just let your mind wander.
