The King of the Forest

Guarding the town of Dilijan day and night is a bizarre statue carved into a tree—the King of the Forest. Hike to this mystical tree right above the town center and enjoy the silence of the forest.

King of the Forest is a short trail that winds up the mountain to where he (the King) is located. You’ll start in the town center and make your way into the surrounding forest. Once at the top, you can visit the cave the King guards, and enjoy the peace of the forest. Don’t spook the demons the King keeps at bay in the cave, though! The trail comes out of the forest by the Aghstev River near the World War II memorial in the town center. FYI, you can loop around from the town center and see the neighborhoods of Golovino and Papanino while hiking this trail.
