Description

The route is located 123 km from Yerevan in the Lori region of Kotayk marz and is one of the peaks of the Pambak sierra. The skiing step begins from the village of Antarashen. Skiers will follow a forest road that slowly goes upwards, soon leaving the gorges and valleys on both sides of the road. This ski trail is passable from January to April (April 20) as most of the terrain on Mount Tezh is located on the northern side of the mountain and remains cold later into the season. Sometimes it is possible to find powder snow in January and April!

This route is located at high altitude ranging to 1900m, and the full up and back tour is about 13km. Most plan for the trip to take over 6 hours.

Fauna: Sometimes it is possible to meet bears, wolves, foxes, and wild rabbits in the Pambak sierra.

How to reach the trail: To cross the above mentioned route, it is necessary to reach Fialetovo, then Antarashen village in Lori marz. It is convenient to travel by taxi. Taxis throughout Armenia are quite affordable. Please use the taxis in which the counters are installed.
