If Turkish cuisine had given us a taste of the Caucasian gastronomy, our journey in Georgia and Armenia had made us fully appreciating this cuisine. Here, you start your meal by rolling up your sleeves, tearing off a piece of Lavash (bread) and tasting Caucasian dishes with your fingertips. You'll finish your meal on a full stomach, full of the flavours of coriander, tarragon and dill that took you to the heart of Caucasian highlands!
A remarkable hospitality, some pink tufa monasteries and breathtaking mountain landscapes:
Welcome to Armenia!
Language(s) Armenian, russian
Hitchhiking level Very easy
Wild camping Very easy
When we stopped in Armenia during our hitchhiking World trip, we decided to also explore the self-independent republic of Nagorno-Karabagh (Karabakh or Artsakh), a region still in conflict but well worth the detour!
