Welcome to the Janapar Trail project. Unfortunately, due to the 44 days of war that ended on November 9, 2020, the trail is not in a hikeable state. As things on the ground become clearer, we will be able to determine when and which parts of the trail will be hiker-friendly once again. Thank you.

The Janapar Trail leads hikers through Armenia and the Mountainous Republic of Artsakh (formerly known as Nagorno-Karabakh).
Welcome to the Janapar Trail project. The Janapar Trail is a 500km (311 mile) hiking trail taking you past high mountains, over hills and through valleys and canyons, discovering many ancient monasteries and experiencing unforgettable hospitality. Much of the trail is green and forested, and much of it is pristine. Few travelers make it to many of the remote areas the trail takes you to, and you'll likely have the trail to yourself much of the time, or share it with a shepherd, as you are one of the first hikers to discover this area rich in history, culture and nature.
