Only 50 kilometers from Yerevan (40 minutes of driving), the Ski Resort of Tsakhkadzor has been a popular winter tourism destination since early 1970s. The town hosted the USSR Olympic team in 1976, before the Olympics in Mexico (Tsakhkadzor is on same altitude as Mexico City).

History

The population of Tsakhkadzor (Armenian for “Valley of Flowers”) is only 2000 people. Founded in 5th century, Tsakkhadzor has several historical sights, among them – Kecharis monastery (constructed in 12th century). The town is a “second home” for many famous scientists, writers and artists because of the excellent nature and climate. We encourage you to visit house-museum of the world famous Orbeli brothers (one of the three brothers – Hovsep Orbeli, was director of the State Ermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia during years of World War 2).

People in Tsakhkadzor are friendly and welcoming, with a developed culture for winter tourism. Under a special Government Decree, Tsakhkadzor is being transformed into a world-class ski resort.
