Aragats Northern - EU Delegation for Armenia 25 years of independence.

To celebrate 25 years of independence of Armenia, the EU Delegation staff members and friends from all over the world (from America to Asia, from Oceania to Europe) reached Armenian highest pick (m 4,090). On the hill around the lake, just below the cross, we fixed a memorial to commemorate the event and the friendship between the EU and the Armenians.

After sleeping in tents at the Kara Lake, we started off in the early morning, back in early evening. The route is difficult/very difficult for "Sunday" hikers and medium for experienced hikers. It entails a total ascent and descent of almost 1,400 m mostly in slippery terrain in one long day. A guide is recommended.

To enjoy the full account of the hike with videos and pictures, see more on the FB page of the EU Delegation to Armenia.
