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).  

 The printed guide book with complete route information and good quality pictures is planned to be released by Up The Rocks club soon. In the guide book you will find detailed information about all the routes and climbing areas around Armenia. NOTE: the sector maps and topos will be periodically updated in response to active development of the climbing areas. For climbing guides, instructors and organized rock climbing trips in Armenia contact us: This email address is being protected from spambots.
