How to reach

To get there, take the highway past Dilijan and Idjevan and then the Noyemberian road to Kirants Village. As you leave the village on the highway, look for our road signs and follow them to the entrance to the forest at the edge of Ajarkut village. It is about 168 km from Yerevan, or 2.5-3 hours from Yerevan.
