Kim Kardashian West has started her "journey of a lifetime" in the birthplace of her ancestors, Armenia.

The 34-year-old beauty - who arrived in the mountainous European country alongside her husband Kanye West, their 22-month-old daughter North, sister Khloe Kardashian and other family members - was greeted by a huge crowd of people at Zvartnots International Airport, which included women wearing traditional Armenian dress offering bread and salt.

On her arrival in the country, Kim tweeted: "Armenia we are here! We're so grateful to be here & start this journey of a lifetime! Thank u everyone who greeted us (sic)"

Later, she added: "I can't wait to explore our country and have some yummy food!"

Kim - whose late father Robert Kardashian was of Armenian-American descent - also said she's determined to make the most of the cultural experience and ensure that her daughter learns more about her Armenian heritage.

The reality TV star wrote on her Instagram account: "My husband and daughter came to Armenia as well to see my heritage and learn about my ancestors! My cousins came along too! So excited I can't sleep."

Meanwhile, Khloe, 30, thanked the people of Armenia for their warm welcoming.

She wrote on Instagram: "The love and welcoming to Armenia has been overwhelmingly beautiful!!! I wholeheartedly, can't believe all of you Angels who are outside our hotel with flowers and smiles. Im incredibly eager to get some sleep and see Armenia in the day light! I hope I'm able to sleep. I'm so excited to be here!! (sic)"
