  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful scenery, nice hiking trails, serene setting. Great place to visit.
  • An beautiful reserve to hike and camp
  • Incredible hike. Ever wondered what one of the monestaries would look like if they were not as well kept as the other ones and simply left? See the top of this mountain. A monestary that has simply been left. Awesome picnic spots at the bottom of the mountain for those who do not feel like climbing. Picnic spots are complete with barbacue place and everything
  • Fantastic national park. Highly recommended.
