Highest roads of Armenia

Located in the Southern Caucasus region of Eurasia, Armenia is one of the oldest nations in the world. The country is a landlocked country in the Transcaucasia region, between the Black and Caspian Seas.

Situated along the route of the Great Silk Road, Armenia has a rich and ancient culture. It’s bordered on the north and east by Georgia and Azerbaijan and on the south and west by Iran and Turkey. It’s a very mountainous country, almost totally covered by the Lesser (or Little) Caucasus Mountains, with fast flowing rivers and few forests but with many trees. The climate is highland continental: hot summers and cold winters.
