This hike is perfect for those who are looking to get away, but not for too long. You’ll traverse through Dilijan National Park for two days, exploring some of Armenia’s most beautiful landscapes.

This hike is a part of the Transcaucasian Trail (TCT) route and takes you from Dilijan’s town center to Goshavank Monastery in the village of Gosh. About halfway through, you'll be able to spend the night at Lake Parz, a popular resort area. Small cottages for renting, as well as camping space is available there. The first part of the trail is 13.1 km (8 mi) long, while the second part, which concludes at Goshavank, is 7.2 km (4.5 mi) long.

We did this hike in one day, about 8.5 hours. It's beautiful and totally worth it! Bring mosquito repellent as those bloodsuckers are nasty and there are SWARMS of them. Also check for ticks after. We found two. Part of the trail has long vegetation so wear long pants to protect from stinging nettle.

Easy trek that you can make in one day without any problem. Most of the trail is in the forest so it is fresh but views around are limited. The second part, higher, is nicer and the views before Gosh worth the trip! It is better to follow the GPS trace because some parts may be less marked than others.
