The famous Jermuk resort is located in the northeast of Vayots Dzor, on the headstream of Arpa River. The road to the resort city crosses through a narrow deep gorge. The city is embraced by forested slopes of magnificent mountain ranges. These forests are known for their wild pear, plum and apple-trees. Foxes, hares, badgers and even bears live in this forest.

The name "Jermuk" has originated from the Armenian word "jerm", which is translated as warm. The Jermuk region has many springs of both fresh and mineral waters. The most famous springs in Jermuk are the warm mineral springs, which are comparable to the Karl-Var in Czech Republic or Zheleznovodsk in Russia and are classified as carbonic acid, hydrocarbonate-sulphate, chloride and magnesium waters.

This underground hot water is used for drinking, for bathing, for healing the stomach and intestines as well as gastroenteritis, abdominal, kidney and neurological diseases.

In addition to its hot springs, the Jermuk resort stands out with its mild climate. The cool bright days in summer, the blue sky in spring and fall are complemented by mild Jermuk winter with lots of snow and no wind. All this, and the fresh mountain air make the rest in Jermuk an exceptional experience.
