Starting from Kari lake, at 3.200 m, we hike up the slopes of the south summit. It is possible to pass through it, but we will orient our steps in order to surround it by the left side and attack directly the saddle between South and West summit. Once there we have our first views of the amazing crater. We descend approximately 300 m to its bottom and hike up again to the saddle between North and East summit. We attack the highest one through a slippery and steep path. Very close to the top there are few aerial passes on the top, through strange volcanic rock formations.
On the way down, after crossing the crater we choose to climb on the eastern side of the south summit, so after leaving the crater we reach the beautiful ridge that brings us easily down to the lake.

    Hi Stefan,
    It is the time for the whole hike. But at a quite fast pace.
    Take into account that it is 15 km and +1.500 m in difficult terrain and high altitude, especially after south summit, and make a calculation considering your level and experience.
    Enjoy aragats!

    Thanks a lot! 15 km is the round trip or 30km round trip? Do you know if from Kari Lake there is a signaled path of the trail?

    15 km is the whole thing.
    The trail is not signaled, but it is quite obvious if there's no fog

    i think may is to soon especially if you want to try north summit the slop of rocks after south summit for north summit is dangerous for may and will be a lot of snow we found a lot on july also please consider the total time you need at least 9 hours for normal hiking but if you consider winter hiking with winter equipment and gain 1500m May possible be care about non pointed way and use GPS device

    Thanks for this path, mate, it was really stunning.
    We fully followed the track till we got stuck on the way back to Kari lake, at the ridge: we couldn't take the same pass that leads to the ridge because of a huge ice piece. Instead, we climbed the south summit (very dangerous). Then, from the summit, we reached the pass and walked on the ridge.
    This was in August 2018.
