Driving up to Vorotnavank Monastery just over a week ago, the roads are bumpy so best to do it in a 4X4 or take your time in a regular vehicle. The monastery itself is rustic shall we say? Small but lovely, in fairly decent shape and of course set in a valley surrounded by natural and peaceful beauty.

If driving here be sure to take the main road via Sisian.
I highly recommend this fascinating smaller Monastery for anyone who appreciates hidden gems off the beaten track. Bird watching in this area v good.

I was very surprised when visited in this place. Monastery complex is large with a lot of tales and scenes to explore. Place to shoot good photos or just listen the stories (you need good guide).

If you plan a trip to this region of Armenia don't miss this monastery. And you better drive SUV due to bad road. Sedans can also pass the road with caution.

The main church of Surp Stepanos was built in 1000 by Queen Shahandukht, ruler of the lands of Syunik. The adjoining church of Surp Karapet was constructed in 1006-1007 by Queen Shahandukht's son Sevada.

Location is very beautiful and unique.

Among the hundreds of Monasteries one can visit in Armenia, this one occupies for sure the top 5. The monastery overlooks a beautiful valley, and the churches are set in the middle of a cemetery. The ancient walls, built to defend the monastery from incursions, are still there and the loneliness of the surrounding landscape gives this place a magical feeling. Take your time to wander in the dark rooms lit up by the rays of the sun coming in from the loopholes. As the majority of places which are far from the beaten path in Armenia, reaching this monastery without a 4WD vehicle can be problematic due to bad road conditions. Go in the afternoon to catch the best light.
