This doubletrack road turns to the southwest south of the village of Ltsen. From there it travels through a tiered climb that's split between steep parts and levels sections where you can catch your breath. Riders will get plenty of great forested and open views as the road follows the contours of the slope. You'll also see the unique Hin Harjis, an uninhabited village, the houses remaining with their thatched roofs and uncultivated gardens. The high-point is reached just before the halfway mark and it's a mostly uninterrupted descent down to the village of Tatev.
