Hiking in Armenia
Dear Barev Armenia! Thanks for the organisation of the tour. General feedback, negative, positive, difficulty and questions: I had a great time and the two days were a great success even though in the end we did Aragats/West rather than Aragats/North. Gor is a really nice guy – he's entertaining, he's responsible (notably: encouraging me to choose the west instead of the north peak was very wise), he finds a good balance as regards walking speed etc. Good English, too. Maher was also very helpful but it's obviously not see easy to communicate with him. Difficulty: a) the Azhdahak day was easy (it was hard on the stomach, all this off-road driving!). In retrospect, a more difficult route or a climb from a point further away could have been possible. b) the Aragats day wasn't difficult and the length of the walk chosen (station – Aragats/S-pass-Aragats/W-pass-station) was OK and could have been two-three hours longer without problem. Going up to the north peak would have not been possible in my present shape, I believe. a) Are the shepherds we saw in the Azhdahak area, the Yazidi, the cousins of the people in Iraq who are now suffering so badly from the ISIS ? Gor mentioned snow scooter skiing down the Aragats and other mountains. I could imagine doing this with my son of 11 (who is a very good skier, better than I, in any case): what would it costs for him and me to be taken up a mountain with a guide and make a very long descent? (I'm not thing about this for the short term but in the winter of 2015, 16, 17, who knows?). Thanks for organising this and best regards, Maurits
