სომხურ-ქართული ერთობლივი პროექტები
Last week, the school where I work as a local development coach arranged a two-day trip to Jermuk. Thanks to the hospitality of our principal Marta Asatryan, I had an amazing chance to explore another part of Armenia. Jermuk is a mountain spa town in the southern Armenian province of Vayots Dzor, 110 km away from Yerevan. As I know, the local Spa was a popular destination during the Soviet era and nowadays is still famous for its hot springs and mineral water brands bottled in the town. Together with the students, we have visited Jermuk mineral water factory. It was an interesting experience to observe how one of the most popular mineral waters in Armeniais produced.. Next day with beautiful sunny weather, we enjoyed all the beauty of the local nature. Jermuk is attractive for its fresh air, waterfalls, artificial lakes, walking trails, and surrounding forests. The town is being redeveloped to become attractive for tourists. Above all was the astonishing winter scenery. After all day of journeying around the town, we went together to one of the local water houses to perform a traditional Armenian dance with music. Together with a number of tourists, I could experience unforgettable moments. That was a very pleasant experience of the local traditions, even as the temperature reached -20 degrees. All in all, I am very glad that I have visited Jermuk and explored the beauty of Armenian mountains. If I have a chance again, I will go back there another time during summer.
