Located along Armenias northern border with Georgia, Lori marz is known for its dramatic mountain vistas, thick forests, and alpine meadows. The province is sparsely populated and known for its spectacular landscapes and nature activities including hiking and mountain climbing. Lori was home to Hovannes Tumanyan, a celebrated poet and novelist, considered for generations the voice of Armenia. The twin monasteries of Haghpat and Sanahin form a UNESCO World Heritage site, representing some of the finest examples of Armenian religious architecture.
