There are not so many trails in the world that are beautiful in any weather. This time we offer you to organize a hike along a trail that has an indescribable view in all 4 seasons. In winter it is white and full of purity, in autumn it stands out with the varied and warm colors of trees or fallen leaves, and in summer and spring it is green and smells fresh. Our main destination is the lake of Gosh, hidden in the heart of the forest. It is a unique and inaccessible place surrounded by beautiful nature.

Before reaching Gosh Lake, our first stop will be at Parz Lake. Here, the participants will have free time to use the on-site services, and then the actual walk to the second stop, Goshavank, will begin. Goshavank or New Getik Monastery was built in 1188 and named after the genius proverb writer Mkhitar Gosh.

After getting acquainted with the history of Goshavank here, we will move to Gosh Lake. Here we will have free time to light a bonfire and relax.
