This trail leads to Ice Prince Cave, an spectacular cave in the Khosrov Reserve.

State Tourism Committee Republic of Armenia

Features River/Creek · Views

Description

The trail to Ice Prince Cave follos along the Azat River and has a very easy start. The trail winds along the river and through the wood, climbing gradually for the first portion. Along the way, you'll pass a trail to the Zhayrapor Church and the Rock Temple. Near the end of the trail, there is a steeper section to climb up to reach Ice Prince Cave.

This cave is a natural monument in the Khosrov Reserve. It was previously referred to as a settlement. Some evidence claims that there was once a three-story church inside the cave, but today only a few walls remain preserved. The Ice Prince Cave is distinguished for its size and attractiveness. In winter, interesting icy vertical images cover the ground of the cave, and in summer, it hosts a magnificent view over the cliffs.
