Natural Caves of Lastiver – Armenia

Natural Caves of Lastiver - ArmeniaThe Lastiver caves are located in the gorge of the Khachaghpyur River, 3 km from the village of Yenokavan, Tavush province, Armenia.

The local population sheltered in these natural caves during the Tatar-Mongol invasion of the 13th-14th centuries.

On the walls of the caves unknown artists left bas-reliefs of astonishing beauty, perfectly preserved to the present day.
