Things to see

Gomk Khachkar and Chapel
This trail follows old dirt roads from Gomk through the ruins of the historic village of Akhta. Are there ghosts about in Akhta? You’ll have to find out yourself!

Ok, we’re not aware of any paranormal activity in Akhta, but there is something eerie about abandoned villages. The Ghost Village Trail can be done as an out and back to Akhta, or, you can continue up the road and connect to the Artavan Loop Trail or the Kapuyt Loop Trail. There are many spots to camp along the way. For those staying in the village of Gomk, there’s plenty of outdoor activities to do in the area, including horseback riding, fishing, and of course, hiking. Be prepared though—there are no shops, restaurants, or cafes in town. The nearest place for amenities is in Vayk, 20 minutes away.
