Mount Arteni


Mount Arteni is registered as a National Natural Monument. Regardless of the low altitude, its steep slopes are of a great interest specially for winter hikes and recovery programs in other seasons. A panoramic view of The Armenian Highland is awaiting you from Mount Arteni.
During past decades, Stone Age tools have been excavated in the surrounding of Mount Arteni.
Minutes away from Mount Arteni Dashtadem Fortress - a substantial fortress of the 7th, 9th and 13th centuries located at the southern outskirts of Dashtadem village - stands still. The Fortress represents several cultural layers of nations who have ruled the fortress.
Besides the cultural heritage, you will find a relaxation and recovery time in the fortress.
