Hidden Waterfall
Haghartsin Monastery

This single-track takes you from the 13th century Haghartsin Monastery to a multi-level waterfall hidden in the surrounding forest.

The trail is 1.6 km (1 mi) 1-way, so you will end up hiking 3.2 km (2 mi) total to go to the waterfall and back to the trail-head. 

From Haghartsin Monastery, follow the single-track over stepping stones in the underbrush. You’ll traverse the snaking veins of the forest, until you arrive at its pounding heart—a hidden waterfall. This little waterfall is so well hidden by cliffs and boulders that it wasn’t discovered until recently! Tune out your worries and tune in to the burble of the creek and the aura of the forest.

Be sure to give yourself some time before or after completing this hike to explore the monastery complex. There are many medieval khachkars (cross-stones) hidden in the forest, plus an old chapel and a half-built Soviet cable-car station with amazing panoramic views of the monastery, the gorge and the rectangular peak commanding the background.

Очень простой и удобный маршрут, потеряться невозможно. Местами грязно, но это вполне ожидаемо. Много ящериц, гусениц, бабочек, кругом цветы, местами земляника.

The trail was very scenic! The path was relatively easy until you reach the near end, it was very daring. I was a bit afraid as a first time hiker however it should be a piece of cake for regular hikers. The end was definitely worth it!! It was breathtaking to see such a beautiful creation of God.

Super easy trail along a road until you reach the stream. From there it is super scenic! The water is incredibly clear. Just look around the rocks to see the waterfall.

Short, easy and enchanting trail from Haghartsin monastery. Don’t forget your swimming costume for a cold dip in the pool by the hidden waterfall. Thoroughly enjoyed walking through the deep forest.

A short but rewarding hike! The trail was a bit muddy and slippery in places when I went but it was a pretty easy hike

Маршрут трудно назвать средним по сложности. Справился даже ребенок дошкольного возраста. Так что скорее лёгкий.

Short and easy route. It is wonderful to combine this route with a viewing of the Haghartsin monastery. We calmly went through it with a child of 3 years. Closer to the waterfall itself there were several places where the child had to be carried over obstacles.

Very easy and fun little trail! Took us just 20 minutes from start to finish (one way) with a normal walking pace. Beautiful waterfall.
