Pick-up and Drop-off
We will pick you up from your hotel early in the morning and we will travel to Lake Kari on the southern slopes of Mount Aragats, which is 3,200 meters above sea level. From here we will begin to climb to the Northern peak of Mount Aragats. This path is difficult and it is not intended for beginners. In the beginning, we will climb the Southern slopes until we reach the mountain pass (3,800m) located between the Southern and Western peaks. Then, we will descend to the crater on Mount Aragats (3,540m). After relaxing at the crater, we will begin our ascent to the Northern peak. The views from the peak are simply indescribable. You will be able to see the other peaks of Aragats, the huge crater, and the majestic Mount Ararat. After relaxing and eating lunch at the peak, we will return to Lake Kari using the same path.
To note, there are real and fake Northern peaks and the difference between them is only a few meters. For safety purposes, all tourists will ascend to the false Northern peak.

What Our Customers Are Saying About This Tour
Me and my wife hiked Mt.Azdhak with WildArmenia. We have contacted by Ashot (company manager) and the service was extremely good! His English is perfect. He was very patient. Gave us valuable information and the tour was organized perfectly. We highly recommend, we had a great time. Great job!!
I'm glad I have chosen this company. Price was reasonable. Thank you, Ashot for arranging everything including my gluten-free lunch. My guide Shushan (she has a peak on Geghama mountains named after her) was very experienced and knowledgeable, she was also very patient with me as I was super slow. This hiking trip was definitely the #1 highlight of my holiday. We visited 2 churches and saw lavash baking after the hike too. One stone many birds! Highly recommended.
We did a great hike to mount azdahak with amazing views! We were very pleased to have Artashes as our guide as it is essential to have a good off-road car and to know the way to get to a good starting point for the hike. The hike itself was not very tough despite strong wind, but it is good having someone leading the way. Artshes could give us lots if information about Armenia, was very flexible with the program and took us to the Garni Gorge and temple as well with good guidance. The day trip for 2 was rather expensive but absolutely worth it.
Ashot from Wild Armenia made me a truely wonderful day on my last day in Armenia - we were on Mount Azhdahak for a day trip. We get to the mountain by a 4X4.. which is my first time to be on a 4X4! At first I don’t know the necessity of that until we start rock-and-roll on the non-road…… particularly this ride is already exciting for me! And the hike on mountain Azhdahak such a greaaaaaaaat exp for me… the whole trip is really satisfying, I truely become a kid in front of the nature, thats great!! Thank you Ashot.
