Tavush

In the northeastern corner of Armenia, Tavush is a small province and one of the most remote marz in the country. A mild climate lends the region a long growing season, and its rolling hills are dotted with vineyards and blooming orchards. Across the region emerald lakes and green meadows are speckled with vibrant wildflowers in the summer months. The mountainous landscape is dotted with the ruins of ancient stone fortresses and monasteries, many being slowly overtaken by nature.
