Description

Explore a small clearing in Dilijan National Park. The Dilijan woods occupy a territory of more than 340,000 ha. In 2002, the area for preserving national forests (established in 1958) was established and subsequently called the Dilijan National Park.

There are about 40 valuable species of trees, in particular, hornbeam, oak, beech and 18 species of shrubs that grow in the woods. There are also 123 species of plants used in food supplements, being evaluated on the basis of their use. About 180 species of herbs grow here (perennial, mint, thyme, Marrubium vulgare, snake bryony, etc.). There are also many species of mushrooms in the woods, the majority of which are use as food supplements. The variety of herbs and flowers in these high mountain meadows is very impressive. The slopes, at an altitude of 600-2,000m, are forested. The main species of trees in the forests are oriental beech, oak, hornbeam, linden, maple and yew.

The wildlife of the province is relatively rich. It is characterized by Caucasian bear, wild pig, rabbit, bubble, fox, hedgehog, jackal, hawthorn, myrrh, lime, cranberry, squirrel. In comparison with the rich flora and fauna, the region is poor with minerals, especially metals and fuel. However, the Tavush region has large deposits of clay, zeolite, felsite, marble, basalt, mineral paints, conglomerate, limestone, dolomite, lithographic stone, agate, and Icelandic spas that are extracted and processed.
