Tavush Marz (Region) in the northeastern corner of Armenia offers a wonderful range of mountain and forest scenery sprinkled with beautifully sited historic monasteries. Trekking through Tavush gives you an opportunity to see all kinds of alpine landscapes: from thick woods in the valleys up to mountain tundra higher 2500-2600 m above sea level. Beautifully located villages and monasteries would make a route diverse and interesting.
