“A tough but worthy route in the Pambak region.”— State Tourism Committee Republic of Armenia
With incredible views of the Pambak Sierra (including many pinnacles) and abundant snow, the route is quite pleasant, especially on the way down. From Ampasar, there are many other mountains visible, including Aragats and Tezh.
Beginning from Jajur Mountain Pass (1952m) and stretching to the south east, the track eventually makes its way to Sevan Pass. The highest peak in the area is Mount Tezh at at 3101m, though there are many other peaks of similar magnitude such as Ampasar (3053m), Gomassar (2885m), Kuzararasar (2891m), Mount Kamar (2738 m), Tsilkar (2558 m ), and Harsnakar (2483 m). Each peak has its own adventure to offer.
This route is located about two hours from Yerevan, but a cab will cover the distance. While the full route is just over 10k in length, plan on the full tour taking about 6 hours. Be sure to bring hot tea, as the area can be quite chilly!
Fauna: In most cases it is possible to meet wolves, foxes, rabbits and sometimes single bears.
How to get to the trail: It is easiest to depart from Yerevan to the village of Margahovit and the trailhead can be accomplished via a hired car (taxi). The reliable taxi cars are with electronic counters that are quite affordable in all over Armenia.
