the world's most spectacular roads

 

Located on Vorotan River near Tatev village in the Syunik Province of Armenia, Devil’s bridge (Satani Kamurj)  is one of the most gorgeous and marvelous natural spots of the country.

The road to this amazing tourist spot is asphalted but pretty narrow and steep. The bridge -one of Armenia’s natural wonders lies in the Canyon of Vorotan River and stretches for nearly 30 meters length. It is located in the deepest part of the gorge in the depth of 700-800 meters. The part of the canyon, where the bridge is located, is so narrow, that even sun rays can’t reach this part. The weather is unpredictable here, and if you are driving along a dry autumn road it doesn’t mean that in 300 metres you won’t get in winter with snow-covered mountains and hills and snow glistening like diamonds.

 

Located below Tatev Monastery, the natural bridge lies between the villages of Tatev and Halidzor. The road is 13.4 km long. The drive is very scenic but steep. Expect 24 hairpin turns. The road darts out onto the edge of a gigantic cliff, under which, about 500 m below, is the roaring Vorotan river. Twisting unimaginable serpentines, the road descends to the famous Devil’s Bridge. The width of this natural bridge is 60 m, the length 30 m.
