The hike itself is entirely on a rutted old road with maybe four or five spots of shade... avoid doing during the heat of the day. Also costs 3000AMD for foreigners; thing is, there are many stunning monasteries in the country and I’m not sure Hayuts Tar was worth the 3000 nor the hike itself. Also, definitely start at Garni Temple, not the Visitor Centre, which adds an extra 2km of road walking. Around Garni Temple, you’ll see the columnar basalts which are amazing, and make up 2/3 stars of this review!
