Amazing route with amazing views of the surroundings. Be prepared though, that there is literally NO marking of the trail except of the 3 marks leading you out of the village, So be prepared to use a map, cow routes and an orientation sense a lot.

Stunning views with moderate difficulty aside from a couple slogs. However the sheep dogs in the area were very aggressive and posed the most danger. The second half of the trail is quite exposed with little cover from thunderstorms if you get caught out in the open. Overall a highlight of Armenia and would highly recommends

This is an amazing hike with rewarding views and overall very beautiful but be aware it is a very tough climb and descent with no real worn in trail to follow except the the top ridge line( as far as we could see anyway) Also be aware if following this exact route the northern route of the loop is very steep and winds through the canyon, it requires lots of climbing/scrambling. I would recommend doing the route as the ascent. That all being said, if you are fit and comfortable scrambling up some steep dangerous sections, this hike is amazing and very rewarding. One other thing to note is when we did this hike in early July, the stinging nettle was very very thick so wear some long pants to avoid having itchy legs for the next two days

Only did the Lake Gosh portion: Hike up a rutted road through trees to a cute lake with good picnic spots. Since the hike is in shade, it’s pretty nice, and there is a table for lunch. You can’t swim in the lake, though. We probably should have left time to check out Lake Parz!

The trail takes you through beautiful hills and forest, but a significant portion of the trail is not marked... we used a hard copy map and the AllTrails app to get through. On one occasion, when the map and the app disagreed, we chose to follow the AllTrails path... which unfortunately led us over an hour off-trail through nettles. Oops. Really good hike, would be tough with a full pack to do in a day. Plenty of streams to get your water from (since it’s farmland you want to filter it). Take care around the sheepdogs, they can be aggressive.

This was fairly tough, didn't have a discernable trail for about 1/3 of the hike. Pretty views looking down on the clouds with fresh raspberries along the way.

Lovely hike, we absolutely enjoyed it! For us it was rather easy to find the "new way". That is because on the one hand the app shows the "new way" and on the other hand the trail was clearly visible from above. But Kirk was right, the concrete marker is broken.

Nice and mostly easy trail along the Canyon. Only the descend shortly before Haghpat is a little steeper. And do not underestimate the length and duration for the walk up to Haghpat.

Very nice hike - if you take the newer trail. As you descend out of Odzun, you'll come to a point where there is a fork in the trail. There is a painted red-and-white flash on a rock at this point, with an arrow pointing to the left path. DO NOT TAKE THIS PATH. It is the old trail, which is overgrown, difficult, and doubles the time to Horomayr. Go to the right, which goes up and hugs the base of the cliff. It looks like someone broke the concrete marker that indicates this newer trail.

Nice hike. However, it is easy to miss the trail on the way out once you get to the plateau. There is a steel flagpole in the open - you need to bear left from there along the ridgeline to pick up the trail again. Also, the path to the right at the start is exceptionally steep and rocky - I do not recommend going that way either at the start or the end.
