Dear Friends and Fellow Pilgrims,
“Arduous” is the way to describe the pilgrimage to the Tatev Monastery.
The monastery sits on a bluff high above the Vorotan River gorge – the other side of the gorge! I drove down one side of the gorge on a paved road. But the circuitous switchback ascent was on a rocky unpaved road from bottom to top. I was so nervous I had no chance to enjoy the scenery. Fortunately, in the village of Tatev I found a lovely guest house with a comfortable room.
