Garni – Jermuk
- Route plan
Again we want to remind again that we will pass the whole routine from Lori region to Syunik. But as some people can’t do the whole programm as they have work or other things to do we splited it into 4 parts. After every part we’ll have a day off when we will recover and gain energy as well as spend an interesting time. Anyone who wants can choose the most interesting one from that 4 parts and join if they can’t join the whole programm.
