Description of the Trail:This trail is in the Aragatsotn province, which is a real paradise for biking trails. Nowadays, the province is silent, but many centuries ago life was truly in full swing here. The silence of these green spaces and dilapidated churches is sometimes interrupted by the trill of birds. Aparan Lake is located in the center of the Aragats and Teghenis 1 mountains. The trail begins at the entrance of the Aparan Water Reservoir, where you can get to by taxi. Entering the territory of the Reservoir you will see the Saint Poghos-Petros Church (St. Paul and Peter Church) on the left. The area experiences sunny days most of the year and is a favorable location for biking, walking and other recreation activities. The trail passes through fields, lush green meadows and a forest, until it gradually reaches the top of the mountain (2,851m). The downward biking trail is on the opposite side of the mountain, passing through forests and reaching the ‘Aghveran’ National Park and then ‘Arthur’s Resort’. Lorutaget is a small river without a bridge, which you will have to cross three times. The trail ends at the territory of ‘Arthur’s Resort’. Technical Specifications of the trail: The best time: April – October Yerevan is 65km away from the Aparan Reservoir, so the road there takes 1hr. and 30min. and costs 6,500-7,000 AMD (by taxi). The distance of the biking trail is 23.3km. The duration of the trail is 5-6 hours. ©State Tourism Committee of RA
