In the morning, we will meet you at your hotel in Yerevan and we will take you to Lake Kari on the southern slopes of Mount Aragats. This lake is located 3,200 meters above sea level. After we reach the lake and admire the views it provides, we will begin our hike to the peak of Aragats, which is 3,887 meters high. Aragats is an extinct volcano that has 4 peaks. The southern peak is the lowest of the four and it is the easiest one to climb. After hiking for 2.5 to 3 hours, we will reach the southern peak, which will provide you with amazing views. After we relax and have lunch, we will return to Lake Kari, where we will travel to Mount Aragats’ well-known mystery spots. It seems like cars are able to move upwards on their own on this road. We will try to figure out this mystery and continue on to the Amberd Fortress. After we take a small tour of the fortress, we will return to Yerevan.

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.
