It takes an hour and 10 minutes to get to the border and around 30 minutes to cross. You’ll be able to exchange money in Armenian currency after entering Armenia. However, paying by card is a bit complicated at restaurants and souvenir shops. Because of this, it is better to have local currency.

Explore Akhtala on a one-day tour in Armenia. This ancient site, built in the 10th century, sits on a high cliff overlooking Akhtala town, surrounded by canyons. Discover St. Astvatsatsin church, a 13th-century tower, and more. It's where Prince Ivaneh Zakarian and his son Avag are said to be buried. Akhtala's name may mean "white glade," with its original Armenian name 'Pghndzahank' referring to copper mines. French archaeologist Jacques de Morgan found 576 stone sepulchers and ancient artifacts in the late 19th century.
