Description

The trail, which is located in Kotayk region 73 km from Yerevan, is passable in January, February, March, and even as late as mid-April (up to April 15). The ski run starts from the last residence in Meghradzor town. The mountain is also interesting for hiking. The water reservoir of Hankavan is also visible from the Mount. The ski run of Mount Artavaz passes through the canyon, along Marmarik River, and then climbs sharply. This section is dangerous with the snowstorms, and it is advised to follow the trail without going off road. The most beautiful scenes will open up around you from the peak areas.
