Description

From the edge of Geghard village climb across plains and slopes along a quiet road. Occasionally the stillness will be interrupted by the call of birds. The distant shape of Mount Azhdahak (3,795m), the queen of the Geghama Mountains, creates a striking background to the open scenery.

After the halfway mark, the grade mellows for an easy pedal over the last bit to reach the western shore of the lake. On the other side, look for a road-trace to double back to a broad rounded knoll. Here you'll find a collection of Vishapakars ranging in size up to five meters tall.

Riders will want to keep the MTB Project mobile app handy as there are many unmarked intersecting roads.
