“The route starts in Teghut village, amongst the high cliffs of the Ijevan Mountain Range and ends in Haghartsin.”— State Tourism Committee Republic of Armenia
There are also buses to Dilijan (a nearby town) from Yerevan’s Northern Bus Station for 1,000 AMD. From Dilijan, there are buses to Teghut for 500 AMD. The route starts in Teghut village, amongst the high cliffs of the Ijevan Mountain Range. The smooth, rectangular peaks give way to lush green forests in the valleys around the “Kiss” Waterfall. All throughout the run, runners will enjoy amazing views of the gorges and mountain ranges.
From the Gugarats Mountains, the trail descends to Haghartsin village, where there is a historic monastery, recently renovated. Other nearby sights within the Dilijan National Park are Goshavank Church, Parz Lich (Clear Lake in Armenian), and Gosh Lake.
The highest point of the province is Miapor Mountain, whose peak stands at an altitude of 2,993 meters. From the peak, there are many views including the clear blue lake of Sevan, the tall mountain ranges of Geghama, Vardenis, Papbak, Teghenats, Sevana, Aregau and Gugarats, and the vast valley of the Kura River.
Fauna: Thanks to the forests, the fauna is relatively rich. Endemic to the area are Chamois, Caucasian bear, wild boar, hare, rock badger, fox, hedgehog, jackals, filed mice, bobcat, martens, dormouse and squirrel. There are also various types of birds, reptiles, insects, as well as fish in the rivers.
