Not for the faint of heart, this 15-day hike through Syunik Province takes hikers up rugged mountains and past ancient monasteries along old Silk Road footpaths. The trail kicks off from Goris and ends in Kapan.

Pass through not one, but three old abandoned villages on Day 3 of the Legends trail, and imagine what life was like perched atop the cliffs of Armenia’s Syunik Province. This trail can also be hiked on its own.
