If you want to explore the Gegham mountains and see mountainous lake Akna ( Ակնա լիճ ), this one is a very beautiful trail to do it.
The most perfect season for this trail is June and July , when land is still green and there are lots of flowers everywhere.
Akna lake is an ideal place for camping.
The water of the lake is also fit for human consumption.


--- In the territory of the whole Gegama range ( Գեղամա լեռներ )there are a lot of tents of Yezidis (national minority in Armenia), which are shepherds' tents. You can contact them, if you need any help.
--- There are huge dogs of shepherds spread in this area (Alabay, Armenian Gampr or Caucasian shepherd), they can attack even if you are not so close to their territory or near tents. Usually they bark but don't bite, but you should be aware, pass that part quickly and have some food to throw them in case if they come very close to you (it can be also a slice of bread)
--- The weather in the Gegham mountains is awfully unsustainable, it can be sunny, rainy and stormy simultaneously during 2 hours so be ready for the weather changes and don't trust so much weather forecasts in this area.
--- The perfect season for the Geghama range is from early June till the beginning of August, the best season is July (June is still snowy, the vegetation gets dried in August).
--- There is not any mobile service that works in the Gegham mountains, they work only when you are close to its villages, also you can have service in the locations below :
-- Close to Lake Akna, on the summit of mountain Shamprasar, Shushan and Aknasar .
--- On Azhdahak summit (near the triangle)
--- Near Nalsar mountain (Not always)
--- Near Vishapalich lake's dragonstones (Vishapner) (Not always)

    The hike is unreal, it is way too beautiful. Be sure to have your device fully charged and maps downloaded because the service is lost throughout the hike and considering that there is no trail whatsoever getting lost can be super easy. Throughout summer you will meet some people there with their animals (be aware of their huge dogs). Also, many of the shepherds were saying there are wolves in the area even though [luckily] we did not see any. Overall, it was a beautiful hike, where you can see some unbelievably beautiful flowers and scenery.
