Activities in Nagorno Karabakh
Dedicated hikers may want to consider crossing Karabakh on foot, taking advantage of a newly marked path that stretches from Hadrut in the south to Kelbajar region in the north. The 190km-long Janapar Trail is marked with blue signs that depict a yellow footprint.
Starting from Hadrut, the trail continues to Togh, Gtchavank, the Azokh cave, Karmir Shuka, the Skhtorashen giant plane tree, Avetaranots, Mkhitarashen, Karintak, Shushi, Stepanakert, Aygestan, Ptretsik, Kachaghakaberd, Kolatak, Gandzasar, Vaghuhas and Dadivank. If you have permission to enter Kelbajar, you can follow the trail to the hot springs at Zuar and finally Nor Manashid.
The entire route takes 14 days,…
Jerderduz, a grazing land for horses, is 1km south of the mosque on the edge of a beautiful gorge. The little red flags sticking out of the field do not denote the location of landmines - these are actually holes on a Karabakh's only golf course , contact Hrachick Haritiounian. One of the most surreal sights in Karabakh occurs every second morning in summer when an 86-year old Belgian doctor named John Malcolm comes here to play a round of golf.
He welcomes golf partners, but note that only right-handed clubs are available.
