Package Itinerary

Meghri - The town sits deep in the rocky, lushly irrigated gorge of the Meghri River surrounded by saw tooth peaks. The post-independence borders left Meghri deeply isolated, and the local economy struggled with remittances, farming, and a bit of business from the highway to Iran. The border crossing is at the Araks bridge near Agarak (population 3500), 8km from Meghri, and open all day.

The Meghri fortress above the town dates mostly from the 18th century. The brick domes of Surp Hovannes at the Meghri town monastery date from the 17th century. In the center of the main part of town is the fine St Astvatsatsin Church with a distinctive octagonal dome, built in the 17th century with later frescoes. There’s also the Surp Sargis Church across the river in Pokr Tagh, the smaller side of town, with two rows of columns and some delicately restored frescoes.
