“This trail begins in the province of Gegharkunik and ends in the Tavush province.”— State Tourism Committee Republic of Armenia
This trail begins in the province of Gegharkunik and ends in the Tavush province. The trail starts in Tsovagyugh, which is located on the bank of Pokr (Small) Sevan. From the top of the village, you can enjoy the impressive views of shining lake Sevan and the surrounding woods, in harmony with Geghama mountains to the south. The best time to run this trail is April to October.
Running few kilometers up, you'll cross the Tavush province border and reach the Dilijan National Park. On the peaks and slopes of the mountains, you'll come across small lakes created by rains and snowmelt.
The mountain range of Miapor (2,993m) is the highest peak in the northwest. You'll run through valleys, and be able to enjoy the beautiful view of Lake Gosh in the village of Gosh. Lake Gosh is a small 100m long drainage basin surrounded with beautiful trees. Then you must run by the marked trail towards the Goshavank monastery, one of the mysterious medieval monasteries of the Tavush province to reach the town of Goshavank.
