Description

Start from the Haghartsin Monastery complex, one of the most mystical places of Dilijan National Park. This monastery is very famous and beautiful! What is most interesting is that it has been renovated with the help of an Arab Sheikh who fell in love with it while visiting the monastery.

You'll find the trail information at the trailhead from where you'll enter the forest on a newly built and beautiful trail. Follow the Transcaucasian Trail (TCT) north to start. Some parts of this trail are very ancient and had been used to bring milk from the mountain farms to the monastery.

After 1 kilometer of hiking on the TCT, you'll come to the junction with the Hidden Waterfall Trail. Go left at this junction and the trail will take you next to the river, and you'll think you're in a fairy tale. One of the newest and most beautiful bridges of the national park connects this trail to the hidden waterfall. Cross the bridge and follow the trail another 80 meters to the waterfall where you can swim and admire the cool and magic waters.

For a longer hike, after visiting the waterfall, you can take the junction with the TCT and hike on the TCT for as long as you like.
