The Arpa Protected Landscape is centered around the Gnishik Canyon, which hosts an impressive 885 plant, 39 mammal, and 190 bird species. This trail gets its name from the super cute chukar bird (known locally as a “karakakav”), which you’ll likely encounter on this hike. To get to this trail, start at Noravank Monastery and follow the appropriate signs. Watch out for informational signs throughout the trail about the flora and fauna species that live there. There are two observation points above the canyon, from which you’ll wonder at Noravank Monastery, one of Armenia’s most impressive and unique monasteries, and maybe even spot a herd of bezoar ibexes, if you’re lucky!
