“To reach this route, you need to get to Sevaberd village, in the Kotayk province.”— State Tourism Committee Republic of Armenia
The flora of the Geghama Mountains is very grassy. There are no forests and trees along the sierra as it is located 2,800 meters above sea level. Meadows blooming in the Geghama Mountains create a ravishing combination of colors. The alpine nature is marked with meadows and small mountain lakes, and the frigid shores of streams and rivulets descending from the mountains are surrounded with alpine flowers. Here, we can meet the dark blue alpine violet; also chamomile, immortelle, thyme, nettle, dandelion and bellflowers in the lowlands.
In the Geghama Mountains, one can see many various species of wild animals. In the petroglyphs found on the rocks of the Geghama Mountains, we can see the diversity of animals, with large and small groups of wild bulls and oxen, Caucasian deer, lions, roes, domestic and wild horses, foxes and wolves, many species of dogs, boar, lynx, leopard, hare, several unknown types of small animals, various types of reptiles, also ducks, geese, storks, swans, and partridges. Many of these animals (jerboa, hare, wolf, fox, lizards and snakes) are still living in Geghama Mountains today. There are also many birds, especially eagles and vultures that can be spotted from far away.
