Armenia: The Deep Gorge Of Dsoraget And Lori Berd Fortress

The Gorge of Dsoraget partially looks like if a giant would have cut into earth with a giant knife. I didn’t find anything like an information about the geological formation history of this site, but looking at the clear and straight edges, it nearly seams impossible that a river should have done this. Even if it took some billion years.

Lori Berd Fortress is from the 10th century and was once a big commercial center of the region. Over 10.000 people lived there. Lori Berd is located East of Stepanawan at an altitude of 1490m above sea level.
