The Transcaucasian Trail in Armenia[1]

The Transcaucasian Trail is two partially completed trails that cross Armenia and Georgia. One goes through the Greater Caucasus and the other the Lesser Caucasus, with each estimated to be about 1,500 km when finished. The trek can be done independently or with a guide.


Efforts began in 2015 by two former Peace Corps volunteers, Paul Stephens and Jeff Haack. It involved the piecing together of formerly existing and newly created trail.


Four main sections are available as of 2021:

In 2021 an 832-km section from Lake Arpi to the village of Meghri in Armenia was being hiked for the first time.


The most common sleeping option is wild camping. Guesthouses are available at some locations.
