Hiking tour to mount Yeranos

If you are looking for a hike in Armenia with a breathtaking view towards mount Ararat or Azat reservoir then mount Yeranos trail is for you! Get your guide and travel to one of the most wanted destinations in Armenia!

Mount Yeranos (1823m) is  a peak near the northern edge of Ararat Region, Armenia, in the western half of the Yeranos mountain range, 8 km northeast of Lanjazat village.

Beyond its natural allure, Mount Yeranos also plays a crucial role in the region's ecological balance. Its slopes serve as a habitat for various plants and animal species, like Bezoar ibex, some of which are not only endemic to Armenia but are also endangered  and are treasured in the Red Book!
