Noravank Canyon is the most developed area for sport climbing and trad climbing in Armenia. Its located 100km SE from Yerevan, on the main road Yerevan-Goris. If you are traveling by public transport (recommended Yerevan-Yeghegnadzor bus) or hitch-hiking, then you want to stop right at the canyon cross, about 1km after the village Areni. In the Canyon your reliable friend can be the local wild-life ranger Vargdes, who as well runs the cute Cave Restaurant in the canyon and a hostel in the village Areni (+374-93-673-407).
