BarevTrails is an international volunteering project taking place in Armenia. It's a cooperation between Wesser Foundation, WWF Armenia and Trails For Change NGO. International and local volunteers together are working in protected areas of Armenia, creating amenities for hikers and outdoor lovers.


Each period is 9 days, from which 7 days the volunteers will be in nature. In each group with the international volunteers will be participating local volunteers too.

All the volunteering work is being organized by our professionals. We all together are installing signages, interpretive panels, blazings, vista points,collecting trash, bridges and for sure: trail building and brush clearing.

Trails For Change NGO joined the cooperation in terms of training the volunteers to build trails and bridges. Begginning in 2019 we have also been involved in organising the project.

Barev Trails Arpa
2018


The Protected Landscape hosts 885 plant species, 47 of which are registered in the Red Book of Armenia. This area is very famous for its beautiful rocks, endemic flora, and fauna.


During Barev Trails Arpa we have worked on three trails: Noravank Trail, Bezoar Goat Trail, and Chukar Trail.

NORAVANK TRAIL (NOR AMAGHU-NORAVANK) 


The trail connects Nor Amaghu village to the monastery complex of Noravank. On the way, on the left and right sides of the trail, you will see the ruins of the old settlement. The trail runs through the Gnishik river valley.


BEZOAR GOAT AND CHUKAR TRAILS 

The Bezoar Goat trail and the Chukar trail each from separate starting point will take you to one of the highest parts of the protected landscape, from where you can admire the impressive sceneries of Gnishik canyon and Noravank.

 

There are two observation points on the way where you can watch the Bezoar Goats. There is also a campsite and drinking water source on the trails.

GNDEVANK TRAIL

The trail starts from Gndevaz village, goes tp Gndevank medieval monastery complex and ends at Kechut reservoir.


We have cleared the old trail of the trash and overgrown brush, some parts needed trail building work.

 

Constructed a toilet and a camping area for campers, cleared the old road from of rockslides and as always, installed informative panels about the flora and fauna of the area.

 

 

Barev Trails Dsegh
2019

 

With the help of our volunteers, we maintained the three historical trails around Dsegh village, added informational signs, directional signposts, and blazes.

 

Hikers can download the app and see the 3D model of Tumanyan, and people hiking on the Giqor Trail can download the audio of the famous "Giqor" story and listen to it while hiking.

 

As always, we have installed informative panels about plants, flowers, trees, animals, the footprints of animals, birds, and fungi that are growing in the area.
