Remember, limiting yourself to just one place can only ever give you a narrow glimpse into the broader natural and cultural makeup of a region. So try to set aside some time to tour Armenia's many attractions. Lusarat, lays 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the east, and Garni sits 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southeast.
Around 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the northwest of Yeghegnadzor is Yerevan, a regional city which is home to Sourp Krikor Lusavorich Cathedral, Mother Armenia and Yerevan Zoo. And don't rush back to Yeghegnadzor until you've visited Yerevan's Matenadaran, Republic Square and Hrazdan Stadium.
If you are looking for indoor activities, make a beeline for Armenia's history museums. These are good places to learn about the local lore and culture and find a unique souvenir or two.
Head outside and get amongst it in the Yeghegnadzor area. Try your hand at rock climbing or give hiking a go.
Discover the true heart of the Armenia food culture by exploring the region's restaurants. Two of the region's favourite ingredients are eggpalnt and burghul (cracked wheat). Ghapama (pumpkin stew) and khash (broth) are just two popular choices sure to imbue visitors' with the true flavours of Armenia. Taste alani (pitted, dried peaches) at the end of your repast. This is a common choice for residents and travelers. Buy a glass of cleansing Erebuni. This beer is popular among locals. Artsakh (mulberry vodka) is a commonly consumed local spirit. It's the perfect way to finish your dining experience. To wrap up your meal, try a kvas (fermented bread drink). It is a common non-alcoholic beverage in this region.
When the time comes to say goodbye to Yeghegnadzor, head to the nearest major airport located in Yerevan, 55 miles (89 kilometers) to the northwest.
