Description of the Trail This biking trail promises you magnificent nature sights. The trail begins from the Armenian Alphabet Monument, in Aragatsotn province. The Stone Lake (Kari Lich) is 30km from the Alphabet Monument. You will reach the Lake by riding along a winding paved road leading up to the slopes of Aragats Mountain. You will be able to admire the beauty of the landscape while driving, sparkling rivers, low mountains, small forests on the slopes of the mountains, gorges and eagles hovering in the clear sky. You won’t even remember how you reached Stone Lake, after the 30km long road. After viewing the panorama of Mount Aragats, you can access the main trail via the ‘Aragats’ Research Station, and whisk down for about 900m towards the Amberd medieval fortress. From the height of the road leading from Stone Lake to Amberd you can see all the mountains and picturesque nature of the area. The trail continues from the historical Amberd Fortress via a quality sandy-gravel road through the gorge and along the right bank of the Kasagh River, until it reaches Orgov village, in Aragatsotn province. The return trip is from the village of Orgov. How to Reach the Trail To reach the above-mentioned trail, you need to get to the Armenian Alphabet Monument. Yerevan is 35km away from the Monument. It is most convenient to travel by taxi. Taxi services are quite affordable throughout Armenia. We recommend taking a cab with a taximeter. ©State Tourism Committee of RA
