in de buurt Kaler, Syunikʼ (አርሜኒያ)

This trail starts from Kaler village and leads you to 2 stunning mountains in the Syunik region - Baghatssar and Khustup.

It's quite a challenging trail for 2 days, but this takes pride of place in my "fantastic hikes of ever" list.
If you want to make this hike for one day, you have to arrange a vehicle waiting for you in the Navcha campsite ( Storot )beforehand.

Baghatssar mountain ( Բաղացսար ) with a height of 3249 m is the highest summit of the Meghri mountain range ( Մեղրիի լեռներ / Մեղրու լեռներ ) .

Khustup is a mountain, which is in the list of the most beautiful mountains of Armenia.
Khustup mountain ( Խուստուփ լեռ ) is the highest peak of Khustup -Katari range ( Խուստուփ - Կատարի լեռներ ) situated in Syunik region, Armenia.

Some information about the trail~~~

--- There are no doubts where is the best point to start the hike - it's definitely Kaler village ( Կալեր գյուղ ), the only nearby village around Meghri mountains.

--- Kaler is mostly an abandoned village and only 2-3 families live there in season ( summer period).

--- SEASON for this trail starts from June till early November. If you are fond of greenery, it's better to hike the mount till early August, if you like golden landscapes more - hike from mid August till November.
After mid November till the end of May, the peaks are normally covered with snow.

--- Mountain ranges of the Syunik region usually have fantastic views of clouds below the summit, as happened during our hike.

--- First part of the hike is easier, you follow 4 x 4 vehicle traces, then it's straight up (when you gain about 450 m altitude).

--- Going down from Baghatssar is a little bit of an "uncomfy hike" as there are no trails for 2 kms, then you join the vehicle traces which lead you to Khustup.

--- After Khustup climb we headed to Navcha campsite, where you can set your tent as doing the whole trail in one day will be too hard.
