  1. Day 1 Yerevan –Spitakavor – Proshaberd Citadel – Yeghegis

    We begin our exploration of Southern Armenia. Driving to the south we gain impressive views of the mountains, bizarre rocks and weirdly sculptured erosions add to the impressions. We start hiking to Spitakavor monastery. Walking through the village, we have an opportunity to meet and chat with locals and gain a true insight into their traditional ways of life. The trail continues through rough slopes and leads directly to Proshaberd Citadel crowning the rocky peak. Here we are rewarded for our efforts by the dramatic views of the mountains and the valley below. Picnic lunch during hiking. Dinner and overnight in Yeghegis Village, Hotel Arevi. Hiking distance 14 km Altitude Vernashen village 1529m Spitakavor 2180 m Proshaberd Citadel 2380 m

  2. Day 2 Yeghegis –Smbataberd –Tsaghats Kar – Shatin Obersation Point – Yeghegis

    We are ready to continue our adventures in Southern Armenia. We begin hiking to Smbataberd, a well-preserved medieval citadel built by King Smbat (12 km round trip). The setting of Smbataberd is perhaps the most beautiful in Armenia, with Arpi river valley at your feet. Here we have the blissful feeling of freedom from the mundane that only truly comes after a few days of travelling nature’s way – on one’s own feet. Then we hike to the isolated Tsakhats Kar Monastery. In the end of the day we will visit Shatin observation point to see Bezoar Goats on the opposite side of the gorge. Picnic lunch during hiking. Dinner and overnight in Yeghegis Village, Hotel Arevi. Hiking distance 14 km Altitude Yeghegis is 1532m Smbataberd is 1950m Tsaghatsqar is 2078m

  3. Day 3 Yeghegis – Tatev – Devil’s Bridge – Khendzoresk – Goris

    Continue further to the South, on endlessly winding roads leaping through gorges over the mountains of Syunik. The trail is a perfect combination of natural and cultural wonders. We take the cable car (world’s longest) to the 9th century Tatev Monastery overlooking the Vorotan valley. After visiting monastery we start our trekking to the Tatev Big Hermitage in Vorotan valley and after we continue walking to the limestone caverns of the Devil’s bridge with natural hot baths in a gorge so narrow, that the sun hardly reaches the bottom. Drive to Khendzoresk cave town at the altitude of 1580 m on the steep slopes of Deep Gorge. Picturesque rock formations and gently inviting nature make this one of Armenia’s most popular sites. On to Goris, a cozy town with fine stone houses with arched windows and balconies on tree-lined lanes. The pace of life is slow here with little commercial or industrial activity, or even tourist kitsch, so it really feels like you stepped back in time. Dinner and overnight in Goris. Hiking distance – 6km (3-4 hours) Altitude Tatev Monastery 1565 m Devil’s bridge 1026 m

  4. Day 4 Goris– Zorats Karer – Selim Pass – Caravanserei –Noraduz –Lake Sevan – Sevanavank – Sevan

    Visit the Zoraz Stones (Armenian Stonehenge). Drive to Lake Sevan via the Selim Pass to the Caravanserei (built in 1332 at 2410 m height). Followed by the visit to the Khatchkars (stone crosses) collection of Noraduz. Drive to Lake Sevan, one of the few highly located big lakes (1900 m above sea level) in the world – presenting a nice Peninsula with the beautiful IX century churches of Sevanavank, viz. St. Astvatsatsin and St. Arakelots. Lunch in Chekalovka at the lake side. Dinner and overnight in Dilijan/Sevan.

  5. Day 5 Sevan – Lake Parz – Dilijan National Park – Goshavank – Lake Gosh)-Yerevan

    Drive to Parz (Crystal) Lake to start the hike in Dilijan National Park along stunning forest trails, cross the wildly beautiful Areguni pass and reach Goshavank Monastery where the great scholar of the 13th century Mkhitar Gosh is buried. Lookout for morning birds that are particularly active at this time, explore the enchanting nature of the park as we take a gentle walk on well-defined forest trails. For those with more energy to burn we offer a short but absolutely fantastic walk to Lake Gosh above Goshavank. End the day with a drive to Dilijan, a small town that captures the spirit of rural Armenia and check in at our hotel. Evening visit to newly-opened Old Dilijan complex on historic Shamambertan street. Lunch during the hiking. Dinner and overnight in Yerevan. P.S. If the group will trek to Lake Gosh (6km), the whole distance of trekking of the day with Lake Gosh will be 13 km, if they will not trek to lake Gosh, the distance of trekking of the day without lake Gosh will be only 7 km. Hiking distance 14 km Altitude Parz (Crystal) Lake 1344 m Goshavank Monastery 1232 m Lake Gosh 1423 m
