During the time of our visit (the end of May) there was still quite a lot of snow on the ground and the necessity to cross huge plains of frozen yet thawing snow carrying 17kg+ backpacks significantly added to the overall difficulty rating. Otherwise than that the trek is quite easy (yet long) and does not feature any technically demanding parts.
You can raise a tent virtually anywhere you like as there’s a plenty of rivulets and mountain streams running down the slopes of the plateau especially during the spring/summer thaw.
You’ll have to take taxi to reach Geghard while Sevaberd is being serviced by daily marshrutkas heading to Abovyan on the afternoons (4pm).
