Points of Interest

1. Karvachar Town

This is the small regional capital of this province.

2. Descend into Trtu/Tartar Gorge

Most of the day you'll hike upriver through this scenic gorge.

3. Geyser

Awesome geyser with a pool built under it for soaking in the mineral waters. The geyser continuously jets out water. Photo of the geyser before and after the tub was built around it.

4. Scenery of Trtu/Tartar Gorge

Great scenery along the Trtu (Tartar) River Gorge.

5. Ascent to Tsar

The switchback road up to Tsar takes you up some serious elevation. The views afforded along the way and at the plateau on top are phenomenal.

6. Tsar Village

Tiny little village on a large high plateau.

7. Tsar Church Ruins

Ruins of an old church with some khachkars around it.
