Wings of Tatev to host schoolchildren

August 25, Yerevan: Wings of Tatev,the world’s longest reversible aerial tramway (5,752m) announces a special offer for schoolchildren and kids from orphanages, who will get free access to the ropeway. The special offer is available from 25 August to 15 September inclusive, IDeA Foundation said in a statement.

Children will get unforgettable memories and impressions from magnificent landscapes, Vorotan Gorge with its panoramic view and the aerial tramway soaring above the Tatev Monastery Complex.

It is noted that Wings of Tatev, an aerial ropeway included in the Guinness World Records, has been operating since 2010. It is one of the landmarks of Armenia, contributing to development of local infrastructures and boosting both domestic and international tourism. Over the 10 years, it has hosted around 1mln visitors.
The abrupt decline in the tourist flow due to this year’s Coronavirus pandemic requires additional funding from the founders to cover operational costs. However, Wings of Tatev continues the flights and offers attractive packages for visitors and guests.

Ahead of the 10th anniversary of Wings of Tatev schoolchildren and kids from orphanages will be able to also visit one of the most famous religious, cultural and enlightenment centers of Armenia, the 9th century Tatev Monastery Complex.
“This will not only become an adventurous trip and exciting leisure for schoolchildren but also a journey into Armenia’s history, culture, religion and educational traditions. To boost domestic tourism, we’ve organized various special offers this year. For instance, in July we announced a special offer for visitors getting 4 tickets at the cost of 3. It especially increased family travel to Tatev”, said Director of Wings of Tatev Vahe Baghdasaryan.

Wings of Tatev were built within Tatev Revival Program which also includes reconstruction of Tatev Monastery Complex and development of neighboring communities. The aerial tramway is an example of venture philanthropy meaning the philanthropist doesn’t expect return of the invested money. The project generates revenue from its operation which covers all the costs of operation. Moreover, the revenue from the tourism infrastructure is allocated to reconstruction of Tatev Monastery as well as various community development initiatives.

For visiting Wings of Tatev, the Foundation offers registration, calling +374 60463333.
