Tsghuk mountain ( Ծղուկ լեռ) is a marvelous mountain with fantastic colors and a very special location in Syunik region, Armenia.
Syunik Highland is a mystic place with amazing wonderful volcanos, one of which is Tsghuk mountain.
~~~Some important items to know before hiking Tsghuk mountain:~~~

--- The place from where you start your hike is considered to be sacred. If you walk around Ukhtasar lake ( Ուխտասարի լիճ ) you'll find a lot of amazing Armenian petroglyphs ( հայկական ժայռապատկերներ) which aged from 4000 to 8000 years BC.
--- You start your trail from Ughtasar lake ( Ուղտասար լիճ ) and return the same point again.
--- You hike up and down by the same way, as the other ways are way too steep and rocky.
--- Season for Tsghuk starts from the half of June till half part of September, as it's usually snowy for the rest period of the year. The best season for view is July. (greenery, flowers and a little snow on the slopes).
--- We hiked Tsghuk in the beginning of September, though there was no greenery, but the colors of the mountain were not less impressive .
--- The length of the trail is 7 km.
