Devil's Bridge

For centuries it was used as a natural bridge to reach Tatev. The mineral springs erupting from cliff rocks at the site color the canyon and form stalactites under the bridge and a small pool of warm spring water attracts soakers for much of the year.

Devil's BridgeMuch has been written about this place. I never saw the caves, but it is great place to fill your water bottles!
As you cross the "bridge", there is a pipe coming out of the rock within ten feet. It is clean mineral water, effervescent, like drinking Perrier!
Tighten the cap good, and it will stay effervescent for days!
