Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 19 July 2013 via mobile

The hike takes you from Kari Lake ( elev 3200m) to the 2 summits of Arakadz. Mountain, an extinct volcano. Kari is reached via car. The road takes you through spectacular views of Scotland- like ranges, bedouin Yezdi herds, and real honey making locals who'll sell it for 10$ per kilo, freshly collected from the hive!!

The hike is easy, takes 3 hrs to reach summit 1. ( elev 3880 m). The 1 hour extra to reach the north facing summit 2, elev4080 m. You can view the caldera, and even photograph Mt. Ararat from here.

The whole trip with private guide, taxi costs 45,000 Drams( roughly 110 US$).

Fantastic view of Kazbek mountain and Gergeti Church. The Military Highway condition is poor and it is tiring to get to Kazbek, but once you get there you feel all the magnificence of this area. I will definitely visit this area one more time :)

We went very high in the Caucasus Mountains in Azerbiajan, and Georgia. Life up there is as it was in times long ago. Khynalyg village out of Guba is really worth the effort.

We then, in Georgia, drove to Gudauri, stayed over night, and then crossed over the high pass to Kazbegi to see the Kazbegi Trinity Church, one of the most famous churches in the world.

The mountains are amazing. Will be up again when further into this trip.

Caucasus and the sloppes are 500 klm to the north. The nearest mountain is in Turkey and this is Ararat. The gorges and the valleys of the Armenian plateau is an other stoty, but not Caucasian Mountains

stunning mountains, beautiful scenery, amazing variety of bird life and the most friendly and helpful people. We travelled through the whole country on a car rally so got to see a lot of the area, I was very pleasantly surprised by Armenia as a whole, it is an amazing country, full of rich culture, history and a million monasteries.
