Description

This beautiful trail with panoramic views is located in Gegharkunik Province. It starts from the borders of Geghhovit and Medina villages, near the mountains (the location is exactly pointed on GPS). The mountains of Vardenis Sierra are mainly craters. During the sunny weather and snowy conditions, powder skiers can skin up without any additional risk. This Sierra is not dangerous. There was not any snow-melt during the sunny weather, that is why skiers went up without taking any risk.

History & Background

The flora is not enough rich in Gegharkunik province but on the way skiers can meet bears, wolves, foxes and rabbits.
