Aragatsotn - Lori Trek

Now we would like to suggest you to pass from alpian meadows to the forest. Aragatsotn - the region famous by its alpian landscape, takes its name from Aragats - the highest top of Armenia and is visible from all parts of the region. Lori is the neighboric district with completely different climate. Deep forest in the gorges changes by alpine meadows on high altitude. It is very attractive place for mountain flora lovers. Thanks to balanced climatic conditions you may see blooming flowers from spring till deep fall.
