Ski Resort
Tsaghkadzor ski resort is located just above the town, at a height of 1750 meters above sea level. There were initially 3 consecutive lifts stretching from the foot of the mountain at a height of 1969 meters above sea level, up till the mountain peak at 2819 meters high, with the 1st and 2nd lifts ending at 2234 meters and 2465 meters high, respectively. In 2006 a 4th lift was added, stretching from the end of the first stage towards an opposite hilltop, thus adding two trails, both leading down to the foot of the slopes.
Apart from the lifts the resort offers ski and snowboard rental as well as skiing instructors. The skiing season in Tsaghkadzor normally starts in December and stretches well into March with the top slopes often fit for skiing in April.

It was founded at the beginning of the 11th century, consisted of 4 separate adjacent churches.  The House-museum of Brothers Orbeli, which is dedicated to the Armenian scientists Ruben, Levon and Joseph Orbeli who were native of Tsaghkadzor.
