Description

Vorotan Mountain Pass is located at 2,344m above sea level. The ascent on the mountain is shorter than the descent. Moreover, the 8km long round-trip journey is conveniently situated between the villages of Saravan and Gorayk. There are no mountain peaks along the way, just pleasant skiing in the Vorotan Mountains with its wonderful views. Skiers can pick up a taxi from the M-2 freeway after descending from the peak.
