Armenia The four peaks of Mt. Aragats

3 days

If you are visiting Armenia and would love to see the country from a different point of view we invite you to join our 3 day trip to the mountains of Armenia. There you will get the chance to see the four peaks of Aragats, an extinct volcano, while camping at the shores of a crystal clear lake. Are you ready to go?

Day 1

Meeting in Yerevan and drive to Amberd. Today we will hike in the mountains of Armenia. We will cover about 8 km (4 miles) with elevation changes of 805 m (2640 ft.). Our destination is Lake Kari which is located 3200 m (10500 ft.) above sea level. The water source for the lake is rain water and melting snow so the water is clean and clear. The lake is small but it goes as deep as 9 m and its waters are always icy cold.

We will spend the night camping at its shores.

Day 2

Breakfast.

Today we will start to hike to the four peaks of Mount Aragats. Again we will cover about 8 km (4 miles) with elevation changes of 805 m (2640 ft.). There is a crater in between the peaks suggesting that, thousands of years ago, Aragats was a giant volcano that since became dormant. We will explore the South and East Peaks. The weather changes fast in the crater so we will start our hike with the dawning light.

We will spend the night camping at Lake Kari.

Day 3

Breakfast.

Today we will explore the Northern and Western peaks of Aragats. Both of them are at least as high as 4000 m (13120 ft.). We will cover about 10 km (6.4 miles) with elevation changes of 600 m (1970 ft.).

Then we will travel back to Yerevan.
