Gosh Lake
Goshavank Monastery
Another trail that’s part of the Transcaucasian Trail (TCT) route through Dilijan National Park, you’ll follow the Aghstev River to Gosh Lake, a beautiful little lake surrounded on all sides by thick forest. 

You’ll start at the village of Khachardzan and follow the river to Gosh Lake. The thick forests this trail will take you through are what the Dilijan area are famous for—you won’t be disappointed! Autumn is a particularly beautiful season in this area. Gosh Lake is a great place for a picnic or traditional Armenian barbecue. You can also go fishing here and camp overnight!

We did it from the village to the lake and liked it a lot, especially with the pretty autumn lake views at the end. My GPS counted 15km.

My favourite hike around Dilijan. I started at Gosh lake and enjoyed the variety of the scenery a lot. Had to cross the river three times barefeet, cold but refreshing. GPS counted 15km, sometimes the trail is not that well marked so be sure to follow GPS. Totally worth it!

A very pretty trail, emerging out of the rich forest near Gosh Lake onto some open viewpoints where there are what appear to be ruins of old, stone homes. Then downhill to the village, following a river.
