Debed Canyon

One of Armenia’s most impressive natural landscapes, the Debed Canyon stretches from the city of Vanadzor, the administrative center of Lori province, along the River Debed and all the way up north to the Armenian-Georgian border. The Debed river that flows through the canyon, the winding road running along it, the surrounding mountains and the breathtaking views that open up from their slopes make Debed canyon a popular destination worth visiting in all seasons.
