The Janapar Trail leads hikers through Armenia and the Mountainous Republic of Karabakh.
Welcome to the Janapar Trail project. Our goal is to provide the information necessary to allow you to freely explore the beautiful back country of Armenia and the Mountainous Republic of Karabakh on foot. You'll hike past high mountains, over hills and through valleys and canyons, discovering many ancient monasteries and make friends along the way. You'll experience first hand the famous Armenian hospitality. Much of the trail is green and forested, and most of it is pristine. Few travelers make it to this remote area, only accessible via Armenia, meaning you'll likely have the trail to yourself much of the time, or share it with a shepherd, as you are one of the first hikers to discover this area rich in history, culture and nature.
