TOGHASAR TRAILS PROJECT

Togh Village is one of the must see destinations of Artsakh. There is so much to see here, and now also, there are some great hikes.

 

Around the Togh Village area you can find many ancient trails built before the historic Gtichavanq Monastery (13th century).

 

Recently, Trails For Change cleared overgrown brush and marked one of these trails, which starts from the ruins of the three-hundred-year-old Melikov Palace.

 

Near the top of Toghasar Mountain the trail reaches Gtichavanq Monastery, creating a very nice 8.5 km loop.

 

The trail passes through a wonderful forest of tall trees, all along the way there are many breathtaking views. You will see the green wonderful nature of the Hadrut Region, you will pass by khachkars, old cemeteries and three old Churches, and that’s not all. If you are a fan of wine, you will have the opportunity to taste one of the best wines throughout all of Artsakh and Armenia, Kataro wine is being produced here.

 

If you decide to hike here in the middle of September, you will be able to participate in the Wine Festival of Artsakh.
