Jermuk
In the north-eastern part of Vayots Dzor, at the upper reaches of the river Arpa is the famous health resort of Jermuk. The road to the resort-town lies through a deep narrow gorge. The town is surrounded with picturesque mountain ranges, the slopes of which are covered with forests. One can find lots of fruit trees here - pear, plum and apple trees - as well as wild animals such as foxes, hares, badgers and sometimes even bears.

The name "Jernuk" comes from the Armenian word "jerm" meaning "warm". The Jermuk region is rich with unique springs of both sweet and mineral water. The most remarkable among them are the thermal mineral springs similar by their composition to the famous Karlovy Vary in Czech Republic. This warm underground geyser water is used for drinking, medicinal baths, curing gastroenteritis, gastric, intestinal, abdominal, nephritic and neurological diseases.

Besides rich with mineral water, Jermuk is distinguished with its wonderful mild climate as well: cool summers with prevailingly fair weather, springs and falls with no fog combined with mild and windless winters full of snow. All this together with the pure mountain air makes one's rest in one of Jermuk's numerous health centers exceptionally pleasant.
