This flying site is in the foothills of Mt. Aragats, the highest mountain in Armenia to the NorthWest of Yerevan. The winds can be high but the site has good thermal potential and provides great views of Mt. Aragats. Hiking to a small rocky T/O takes about 2-3 hours.
T/O 200 m vertical
Near the town of Aperan, to the North of Yerevan, the village of Vardablur provides a nice flying site. The mountain is surrounded by huge agricultural fields, allowing flight in any wind direction and endless landing zones. An ancient pagan cemetery nearby is a worthwhile diversion from the trip home.
