Holy Mother of God Cave Church
Martiros Waterfall
Looking for a short and easy hike to a beautiful little waterfall? This trail in the stunning Vayots Dzor Province is for you!  

You’ll head out from the village of Martiros to the Holy Mother of God Cave Church, a unique church carved into the rockface of Mt. Nazar. Be sure to take a peek inside before continuing to the Martiros waterfall! The next section of the trail is quite interesting because of the ancient stone retaining walls. It may have been a part of the Silk Road, or at least served as a transport corridor through the beautiful hillsides. One thing’s for sure: tremendous effort went into these stone walls, which switchback up the mountainside and cut across the slope. In 2019 we funded the clearance of this existing trail and brought it back to its former glory. It may no longer serve caravans of traders, but we know that hikers like you will make good use of it! Just beyond the waterfall at the end of the trail you can see the outlines of various structures; one can assume this was the perfect place to stop overnight due to the location and the water source.
