Anapat - Lastiver

Located in the Tavush province, the caves in the picturesque valley of the river Khachakhpyur contain evidence of the earliest architectural attempts of mankind: ragged and yet powerful. The “small Anapat’’, located in a lush jungle-like forest, comprises both naturally-cut and picturesque artificial grottoes hollowed by human hands. The latter dates from the prehistoric times until the Middle Ages.

The caves of Lastiver lie at a distance of 3km from Yenokavan village. Inscriptions on the cave walls are from the 13th – 14th C. Some years ago two hospitable brothers created a forest camp, where now you have the possibility to relax amidst a pleasant natural atmosphere and refresh yourself.
