Armenia tourism invites you to improve your health and relax!

When thinking of tours to Armenia consider one of its excellent travel destinations resort-city Jermuk. Its name is translated from Armenian as “hot spring”. About Jermuk enthusiastically responded the American writer William Saroyan and Marshal Baghramyan. They compared this area to the Alps – here are the same beautiful flowers, forests and waterfalls.

The main attraction of Jermuk are mineral water springs. Local water is famous for its healing properties and can return any person to a cheerful life.

Getting there. The best way to get to Jermuk is by the highway leading from Yerevan (175 km). The route itself resembles an open air museum. Along the way you will meet the architectural monuments, churches, castles, fortresses and Mount Ararat.

Jermuk-ArmeniaThe easiest and most convenient way to travel around the country – by shuttle bus. Between settlements scurry small minibuses that will get you wherever you want for 100 AMD. You can also take a taxi – to catch the car for a trip or rent it for the whole day.

Cuisine and restaurants. Jermuk is divided into two areas: recreation and residential. Major stores are located in the residential part. It should be noted that the infrastructure of the city is not well developed. In summer there are several outdoor cafes and a couple of restaurants with acceptable prices. The choice of food is normal, mostly national cuisine or international, that is a bit of everything. Another restaurant is located on the hill, where you can dine well after skiing.

Shopping. Local bazaars and shops offer inexpensive products. Tourists often buy here as a souvenir jewelry, pottery, brandy, wine, spices. But the chief souvenir of the resort is mineral water.

Hotels in Jermuk. Jermuk is very popular among tourists, so there is a well developed hotels sector. But to get a good room, you should book it in advance. Tourists can choose in Jermuk between hotels, guest houses or rooms in the private sector. The most famous hotel in resort is “Olympia”, offering sanatorium and spa services. The most famous 3* hotel is “Verona”.

Rental apartments in the private sector save money. Here you can rent a room or the whole house. However, in this case, you will have to walk for mineral water by your own, whereas almost all hotels offer their guests the healing water.

Jermuk-Waterfall1Treatment in Jermuk. Jermuk is rich in water. Here flows Arpi river and there are hot and cold springs with clean water. This city is famous for its mild climate, sunny days, beautiful nature and moderate humidity. These factors made from Jermuk a first-class resort. By the way, the first time the city spas have been mentioned in the 1st century BC. People come to Jermuk to improve their health. Local resorts and sanatoriums treat diseases of gastrointestinal tract, liver, gallbladder, the musculoskeletal system, gynecological diseases, and more. You can come here at any time and for any period.

Do you want to stay here forever? You are welcome! You will ski and drink mineral water with brandy.

Skiing. On Shish mountain there are two routes: for beginners – 1400 m., for experienced skiers – 1300 meters. The height difference is 400 meters. Trails are modern, prepared according to international standards.

The lift costs 1000 AMD, ski pass – 6000 AMD. There is a café here and a rental service of ski equipment. Complete kit for skiing will cost 6,000 AMD, for snowboarding – 10 000 AMD.

Drinking gallery – a symbol of the resort, it is located next to the recreation complex “Jermuk Armenia”. Gallery is
a beautiful architectural structure and from its wall are derived several taps Jermuk_hot springs_10with drinking water. Each tap corresponds to a particular type of mineral water, and in each subsequent tap the water is a little hotter than in previous.

Jermuk waterfall is located in Vayots Dzor area. On the territory of the Armenian plateau can be found more than a hundred of such sources. It is located at an altitude of 2000 meters, and from its source is produced high-quality mineral water.

Gorge Arpi is located in the center of Jermuk resort and actually divides it into two parts. This gorge is protected by UNESCO. First sanatoriums appeared in the city close to the powerful waterfall. In this narrow gorge of Arpi river there is a Noravank monastery complex, built in 13th century.

Keep in mind this useful information while traveling to one of the best Armenian holidays location – Jermuk!
