Aluk or Alouk mountain i ( Ալուկ լեռ) is one of the available mountains of the Zangezour range , as most of the mountains of Zangezur are the border of Armenia - Azerbaijan and are not available for hikers.
From Alouk mountain you'll have fantastic view of Zangezour mountains, especially the second high poind of Armenia - Kaputhugh mountain ( Կապուտջուղ լեռ )․
Though it is considered to be not so close to the border, there is MUST INFORMATION you need to know before going there:
--- The mountain's location is close to the Armenia - Azerbaijan border, make some inquires before going there, it's safety depends on many factors (tense on the border, season, MOD of Armenia's approval, etc)
--- The trail leads to Tsaghkari lake which is the closest destination to the mountain.
The way to the lake leads you through 4x4 vehicle traces, so you can both hike there and to get there by an off - road vehicle.
--- After hiking to Tsaghkari you go astray a little bit, then you should join the same 4 x 4 vehicle road which leads you to 3600 m. Last 100 metres follow the gpx trail.
--- The mountain is available only from the middle of July till The end of September.
--- It's better to hike up and back by the same trails, as another ways are too steep and it will be very uncomfortable to go down.
--- The season for the best view is July. (snow and greenery are intermingled with each other)
