When to visit
Winter in Armenia can be bitterly cold and should be avoided by visitors if at all possible. Also, many of the sights outside the Arax Valley are inaccessible because of snow. That apart, the timing of any visit has to be a compromise because of the altitudinal variation in the weather.
The best times to go are generally late May and June or else late September and October. The former sees the flowers at their very considerable best and is the nesting season for birds. The latter is drier but of course there are few flowers and much of the country is parched and brown. These periods of late spring and late summer are also when visibility is better with frequent views of Mount Ararat. It is usually invisible in summer because of heat haze.
