This metal suspension bridge is loads of fun to cross if you don't mind heights and you don't mind the movement. You'll feel drunk crossing it as you'll have a hard time walking straight! Guaranteed laughs and lots of photo/video ops. Yes, there are lots of stairs to get down to the bridge and then lots to climb back up to get to the car park area, but the setting and scenery are so fabulous that you'll quickly forget the pain and breathlessness of it all. Since the bridge is fairly new, it is in excellent condition and feels very safe. I've crossed much scarier suspension bridges in Nepal. Wear good shoes, and If it is hot out, do not forget to bring water and a hat. Go to the cemetery (steps down to the right of the bridge) for great views of the bridge from below.

We found the access point to the Swinging Bridge by following a sign on the road to the village of Khndzoresk. Snailing our way along an eroded road, we parked at a picnic area and were guided the last bit of the way by a young lady who had just returned from a year as an exchange student in CA. Finding an English speaker to ask had on many occasions turned out to be a challenge. There is a steep path with stairs leading down to the hanging bridge. The views along the path alone are worth the visit if crossing a swinging footbridge is too scary. There are shaded resting places at several points where you can sit and reflect and enjoy the views. The shade is important in the hot summer of Armenia. At the bottom of the stair you find a smal cafe, which I didn't visit.
The metal bridge, which spans a gorge, is quite long and responds to motion by swinging. I made it a cross by keeping my eyes in the bridge or the mountainside and by moving slowly at a distance from other visitors. This kept the vibrations at a minimum.
The bridge leads to a cave village in the mountainside on the other side of the gorge. There are many caves which have been used as homes until the 1950s. I only had time to visit a few. Some had fronts added on and to expand the living space. There is path along the river that leads to a peaceful chapel where you can find candles and matches and say a prayer. It became an intricate part of our Armenian experience to light a candle in the many old stone chapels and churches we visited.
There is an access road to the caves from the other side of the valley where you are supposed to be able to drive down. We did not find it, and I would personally choose the stairs and Swinging Bridge.
Worth every step.

We spent the whole afternoon in the area. The bridge itself is very exhilarating and fun to cross but not for the fainthearted. Pause for a moment in the middle just above the deep canyon and have a good look around. It is better to arrive in the afternoon - even later afternoon. The colors are much more distinct.

It would be criminal not to visit the Old cave dwellings and monastery in Khndzoresk if you are in Goris. About 12 kms from Goris, this attraction would require a 4 wheel drive to reach if you are in a hurry. If you are OK with driving slow on a dirt track of about 2kms or more enjoying the scenery of rolling hills, a normal saloon car would be sufficient.

The walk across the deep gorge on the swinging bridge is an experience not to be missed and the cave dwellings /old monastery/ church on the other side is worth the adrenaline rush that would get while walking across the swinging bridge.

The Swinging Bridge at Khndzoresk by the formerly inhabited caves of the area was erected a few years ago and has so far been very reliable. Crossing it you feel like Indiana Jones and when the breeze makes it sway, some people white knuckle it, we laugh and carry on with our stomachs in our throats and doody in our pants. Fun bridge to cross, it is very safe just gets the adrenaline up a bit and the views down into the gorge will make you wish you hadn’t looked down.

Khndzoresk swinging bridge is must see place in Armenia for both extreme and relax lovers. You will wish to cross this bridge many times. After crossing it you will appear in fascinating Old Khndzoresk. This village expended on both slopes of the mountain. These slopes had no flat areas necessary for construction of houses. And because of this, people used natural and man made caves on these slope as dwellings. Many of these dwellings were 20-30 m high from the ground.

This is a way to get to old Khndzoresk cave village. It’s a very long bridge, it’s fun to walk and also nice to see it with background scenery from distance. It’s stable, don’t be afraid too much to walk on. You stop by in the middle of the bridge, see the scenery of caves and mountains around, beautiful! You come all the way down the steps to the bridge, you can walk up or take a taxi ride.

Khndzoresk Swinging Bridge and what felt like the million stairs to get to it was a wonderful and unique experience. I can't even imagine how the locals built this beautiful bridge. The history and the stories of the area is truly amazing. If your lucky enough to be there when there aren't large crowds you almost imagine what life was like living in the caves. The church is hidden so make sure you continue to go all the way to the end of the trail. Make sure to support the little cafe and crab some refreshments before and after. Very kind people! Will for sure return one day!
