Many of us have heard of the famous Silk Road and caravans filled with goods meant for markets in Europe and the Orient. Armenia was one of the important parts of the Silk Road. Now you can still trace the famous Silk Road in Armenia by following its caravanserai, or inns. These were the medieval stopping points where caravan riders and their animals spent the night. You drive about 2410 meters up through Selim Pass and one of these caravanserais will welcome you. It will unwind you in this off-the-beaten-track location, far from the stresses and strains of the rat race. The inscription over the entry dates the building to 1326-1327. And the two bas-relief carvings on the façade depict the emblems of the Orbelian family: a winged animal and a bull.
Take this wonderful trip to fill your life with extraordinary emotions. Right here you will feel complete freedom and the wind on the top will start whistling in your ears: “ Open your arms and fly”. Talk with nature and listen to the stories of the past that entertained these caravan riders.
