  • The park covers an area of 28 thousand. HA, of which 94% are forest. It is located a couple of kilometres away from the town of Dilijan and 1.5 hour drive from Yerevan. The Park was created in 1958 for the purpose of protection of the animal and vegetable worlds. Inside the park there are many mountain ranges, wooded, whose height ranges from 1100 m to 2800 metres above sea level. Inside the Park are picturesque Lakes: Parzlich, Zhangotlich, Bachnilich, Ghosh and others. There are also numerous mineral springs. In addition, in the Park you can see rocks, caves, monuments, such as the monasteries of goshavank, haghartsin, Matosavank, ancient cemetery, the remains of ancient settlements and khachkars. Within the park lies the town of Dilijan. And another interesting thing is that on the territory of the reserve, along the river Getik, are the largest in the past Zakavkazii. Previously, there is guaranteed to be cured of tuberculosis. Now everything is good wild, trail routes barely visible, Mountain beauty is fabulous.

  • If you like beautiful nature and old style houses, it's one of the most beautiful places for it.
  • An Alpine Village nestled quietly in the mountains with fresh air and greenery. Accommodations are sparse but very rustic and with a great sense of peace and quiet. The food served at the restaurant is top-notch with a home-cooked feel.
  • In order to get to Hagartsin monastery you have to take a taxi or rent a car.
  • Quiet and idyllic. The perfect place to escape the big city.
  • Beautiful scenery, nice hiking trails, serene setting. Great place to visit.
