During our hiking tours you can visit gorgeous fortresses, ruins of ancient villages, medieval khachkars (cross stones), architectural monuments with unique engravings and an old Zoroastrian cemetery just next to the rocks where the bearded vultures and other wild birds have their nests. Our mountain treks feature visits with local families in traditional houses built into the mountainside, as well as nature hikes featuring waterfalls, rocky landscapes, and spectacular vistas. You will also get the chance to see rare endemic plants and have a picnic lunch made of delicious local food in a gorgeous natural setting. The area of the CWR was underwater hundreds of thousands of years ago so you can still find prehistoric fossils and other organic remains all around.
