Mozrov formations

Mozrovi caverns are located near Yeghegnadzor, Armenia. They are very raw and should be entered with a guide. You will have to get this assistance from the Yeghegnadzor area, maybe from the firm located there named Aquarius travel. The caverns are 300m in depth and have stunning formations. These caverns are generally closed to the public, due to problems with vandalism by visitors, including the destruction of stalactites and stalagmites.

Arpi (697 v) founded in 1965. About 6.4 km after Areni Village, just before the Arpi sign, the first road turning right to cross the Arpa r, leads in 7.6 km to an old guardhouse on the left and, immediately beyond on the right beside the road, the tin-covered entrance to the Mozrovi cave. Discovered in the 1970s during road building and still not completely mapped, this cave is deep and full of spectacular colored stalagmite and stalactite formations. Entrance is perilous, through a hole in the cover and down a steep slope, and should not be attempted without an experienced caver. The Arji cave and several others are in the same general area.
