Private tour to Aragats(Lake Kari), Armenian Alphabet, Amberd

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.

The complex of Armenian Alphabet Monument 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.

Amberd 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.  The structural configuration is thought to have not changed since it was first built in the 7th century. Excavations have shown that the interior of the castle and rooms were quite lavish with elegantly carved decorations in the rooms, oil lamps, incense holders, and walls decorated with silks and brocades, and with bronze, gold and silver ornamentation.
