  • To Vandazor from Tbilisi (Georgia)

    Vanadzor Transportation

    There is a marshrutka (minibus) at 9.20 from Ortachala in Tbilisi to Vanadzor. It leaves earlier if it gets full, which was the case when I travelled with it. To Ortachala you can take marshrutka 94 and 118 from Marjanishvili (from outside McDonald’s). I arrived at the station around 8.00, bought the ticket and had some tea and bread. At 8.45 the...

  • From Vanadzor to Dilijan

    Vanadzor Transportation

    I was told the minibus to Dilijan, from Vanadzor, left at 9.00. When I had breakfast I was told it left at 8.30 and hurried up, didn't want to be without ticket. 8.15 I arrived at the bus station and was shown to the marshrutka (minibus) to Dilijan. In the window of the minibus there was a timetable, and apparently the 8.30 bus was just the first...

    Vanadzor Restaurants

    I didn’t see many restaurants in Vanadzor. One that was in the guidebook seemed to be shut down, so I went to Avantgarde on Tigran Mets Poghota. I sat down at one of the outdoor tables and got a menu, which was both in Armenian and English (good as the waiter did not speak English). They did not have my first choice so I ordered cheeseburger and...

    In the mountains you can find water for drinking. Here I am drinking from a fountain just by the road on the way from Haghpat to Alaverdi. The water was very cold and fresh.

    Cable Car

    by MalenaN Updated May 24, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A cable car goes from Alaverdi up the steep mountain to Sanahin. It goes from behind the post office, just north of the city centre and bus station. Buses coming from Vandazor stops at the cable car stop.

    The cable car is not running all day. It is a convenient and fast way to get to Sanahin and if you miss the cable car you will have a long walk ahead of you or you will have to look for a bus going up to Sanahin (don’t think they are too frequent). When I was in Alaverdi, in June 2003, it was running as follow:
    07.15 - 09.45
    11.00 - 14.00
    15.00 - 19.30
    23.15 - 23.45
    00.15 - 00.45
    It is very cheap. One way costs 50 drams.
