The Voghji Valley trail takes you to some of Armenia's most historic sites, with breathtaking landscapes along the way. They are perfect for day trips and can be reached from our ARK office, Kapan Ecocamp or the Dacha Ecocamp in Arajadzor village via the Dacha Trails.
Halidzor Fortress is located 5km southwest of Kapan, Halidzor was built in the 10th-century as a monastery. In the beginning of the 18th-century, Armenian military commander David Bek turned the ancient monastery into an unassailable fortress and a symbol of many victories.
This 1 km path to Halidzor Fortress starts in the Halidzor district just outside Kapan. The beginning of the hike takes you through a little bit of 'urban hiking' before you venture deep into the forest. This is a trail that villagers have used for centuries, to pick greens and herbs.
