This ski trail begins in Sevaberd village, in the Kotayk marz.

State Tourism Committee Republic of Armenia
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

To access the trail, you need to get to Sevaberd village, which is most convenient to travel to by taxi. Taxi services are quite affordable throughout Armenia. We recommend taking a cab with a working meter, and making sure the driver uses it.

From the northwest side of Sevaberd, the trail will lead you into the Geghama mountains, whose range is about 65km in length and 35km in width. The range includes many volcanoes, such as Seghanasar (3,219m), Sevkatar (3,225m), Spitakasar (3,555m), Nazeli (3,312m), Vishapasar (3,157m), Yerakatar (2,589.6m), Geghasar (3,444m), and the highest peak, Azhdahak (3,597.3m). The trail ends at a height of 2,900m, but in case you have time, you can continue skiing at higher elevations. The best return path is to take the same path back down the way you came.
