“An increasingly challenging climb up the slopes of the dormant volcano, Gutanasar.”— State Tourism Committee Republic of Armenia
From Fantan, you'll head south to climb Gutanasar. The mountain is a dormant volcano in the center of Armenia’s Kotayk province. Covered with thick snow from January through March, it is part of the Geghama Mountains that neighbor Lake Sevan to the west. This trail begins 3 km south of the volcano, at Fantan village. The mountain has an elevation of 2,299.6m and slopes with tilts varying between 25-45°.
Gutanasar is rich with deposits of pearlite and pumice. Since the mountain is not particularly high, its snow cover is silky soft and enjoyable on every level. If weather permits, the peak of Gutanasar offers a view of the Hatis, Ara, Aragats, and Ararat mountains.
