Things to see

Drunken Forest (Takhtah)
Parz Lake

Starting at scenic Parz Lake, you will twist and turn your way to the center of Dilijan (or vice-versa). This 10.1 km (8 mi) trail is part of the Transcaucasian Trail route through Dilijan National Park.

This trail takes you through deep forest, steep slopes, and alongside the edge of lush plateaus of grass and nettle. You will eventually reach a clearing with a fire pit and space for a couple of tents. At this point, you can also choose to go through the Drunken Forest, which will take you to the town center of Dilijan.

Make time to hang out at Gyolort, the wildflower meadow at the high point of the route, from where you can see across the whole of the National Park on a clear day!

A great day out, especially if you start in Gosh. Lovely forest paths and meadows at the top. I enjoyed all the free berries along the way.

Beautiful hike with a mix of lush forrest and high medow. The views across the vally to the cliffs are remarkable site. Parz Lake makes a nice finish with food, drinks amd other amenities available.

Wonderful hiking through varied terrain with some truly spectacular views from the high points in the alpine meadows. The trail also passes by some very rustic farms with friendly locals hanging around in the summer months but otherwise you're unlikely to bump into anyone. very enjoyable overall
