Hiking tourism in Armenia launches its first section

Published on : Sunday, October 29, 2017

Hiking tourismHopes are high with the first section of newly built Trans-Caucasian hiking trail opening in Armenia.

 
The international group of young adventurers who set up the operations live communally, don simple outdoor gear and bunk down in tents at night, but these have indeed kicked off the ambitious Trans-Caucasian Trail (TCT) project, a long-term scheme set to change the face of adventure tourism in the westernmost fringes of Eurasia.

 
Officially launched in early 2017, the TCT’s final goal is to build 2,000 kms of world-class, long-distance hiking and mountain-biking trails from the Iranian-Armenian border to the Georgian-Turkish frontier in north-western Caucasus. After its completion, visitors will need about three months to complete the full circuit.

 
The TCT is still in its inception stage.

 
Last summer,TCT’s first 100km stretch, which is equal to about four days of hiking was opened.

 
Three people run the Trans-Caucasian Trail operations directly on the ground, helped by rotating groups of international volunteers who apply online and travel to Armenia to join the resident trail-building crew for periods of up to two weeks.
