Climbing Mount Aragats – One Day Hiking Tour in Armenia

per person

Climbing Mount Aragats is a thrilling journey to undertake with us, filled with culture, nature, and history. The tallest mountain in Armenia, the picturesque Mount Aragats is home to stunning landscapes and lakes, snow-covered peaks and a taste of ancient natural history. Explore the crater of a long-forgotten eruption as you hike the gentle slopes, and enjoy the abundance of rich Armenian air as you walk amongst wildflowers and beautiful meadows.

Aragats Mountain

This mountain actually consists of four peaks, those of North, South, East and West, named after their geographic position relative to the compass. Their elevations are:

Northern—4,090 m (13,420 ft)

Western—3,995 m (13,107 ft)

Eastern—3,908 m (12,822 ft)

Southern—3,888 m (12,756 ft)

The highest point of Mount Aragats, the Northern peak, is the highest point in the Lesser Caucasus region, and the highest point in all of Armenia. It’s so tall that it hosts both alpine and sub-alpine zones, four summits and one of the biggest craters in the world, the remanent of an ancient volcanic eruption. Hiking in Armenia welcomes perfection on this tour, where you can trek all over Mount Aragats and soak in the sights.

 

Tour 

Our tour begins early in the morning, with the departure from your hotel. We will travel via a comfortable vehicle 3200m above sea level, enjoying the quiet majesty of the landscape as we travel.

After departing the vehicle, your Mount Aragats hike begins in earnest at the southern peak, near Kari Lake (“Stone Lake”), a cold freshwater lake surrounded by alpine meadows, wildflowers and the backdrop of the snow-covered peaks of Mount Aragats. From this point, we will set out on a 10-11km Armenian trek up the southern peak of Mount Aragats proper, taking in the sights as we ascend and descend this majestic mountain.

Returning to our awaiting vehicle, we will return to Yerevan, where you may choose to visit the 10th century Amberd Fortress, one of the largest free-standing fortresses in Armenia. Its complex has local historical importance because of its uniqueness in architecture and Armenian construction. Not only does this area host a variety of rich churches, chapels and baths, but the walls and gates are deserving of exploration as well, to finish off your Armenian hike in style.
