Sisian

Sisian is a city in Southern Armenia. It is a pleasant if unremarkable town, always cooler than Yerevan. It is a good base to visit Ughtasar mountain, and the thousands of petroglyphs on top. A river runs through the town, which has an ancient church called Sisavan on top of a small rise in the center.

Several marshrutkas a day to Yerevan (4hrs) and 1-2 to Goris (45 mins).

Taxis can be found at the bus junction. They can drive to nearby attractions for quite reasonable prices and also to Goris for 6,000 dram.

Walking around town is easy enough.
