Dilijan
In the north-eastern part of Armenia, at the meeting-point of the three picturesque valleys, on the banks of impetuous river Aghstev is the resort of Dilijan. Its vast territory occupies the woody gorges of the Aghstev basin and its two tributaries. The cliffy mountain slopes and peaks, deep gorges and splendid primeval forests stun with their beauty. An Armenian saying states: "If paradise had mountains, forests and springs, it would look like Dilijan".

The town is 1250-1500 m above sea level, 110 km away from Yerevan. Dilijan and its surrounding territory is a national preserve bordered by the Minor Caucasus mountain ranges covered with deciduous and coniferous forests. The woody-mountainous climate with light breezes, almost permanent moderate relative humidity of about 65 percent, warm winter and cool summer make this resort very popular. The clean mountain air is filled with the healing scent of pine-trees. Dilijan is rich with mineral springs as well, the quality of which is close to those of Borjomi water in Georgia and Vichi in France. In the outskirts of Dilijan are the masterpieces of Armenian architecture, the Haghartsin and Goshavank monasteries.
