Travelling with JUST DILIJAN IT! The beauty of Lori Berd

To walk around the places that once stood at the center of a sovereign Armenian kingdom, to be photographed against the backdrop of a mountain river, to explore the unique flora of the South Caucasus, to stroll in the shade of the trees in the Stepanavan Dendropark, gathered from botanical gardens around the world – the participants of JUST DILIJAN IT! 2017 did all this in one of our trips.

Today the fortress of Lori Berd contains the ruins of a unique medieval city, which was once the center of Armenia’s Lori Kingdom (Tashir-Dzoraget). When approaching the fortress, an incredible view of the gorge and the mountain river opens up.

In one of the trips, the kids who came to JUST DILIJAN IT! 2017 had the time to visit the Stepanavan Dendropark, founded in 1933, where in the company of our experts they became real ecotourists!
