HORSE RIDING 7-DAYS TOUR
(you and your group could choose the date, which you want!)
Our horse riding tour lasts 7 days. The daily ride lasts from 3 up to 6 hours, every day we are riding from 15 up to 30 km. Everything depends on the preference and the condition of the group.
We are starting our horse tour in Topcatan village, located at the foot of Mount Ararat. We move in a northwesterly direction to Arzep village, where we will look the old Armenian graveyard. There we will also drink very healthy spring water, for which the Sagliksuyu village is famous. Next we will move in the direction of the Diyadin town, where we will have the opportunity to bath in the hot springs.
All the time we are riding on horses through kurdish villages, as well as mountain pastures (yayla) in the summer inhabited by Kurdish Nomads. In one of Kurdish tents we will drink the tea and we will nourish farmhouse cheese and bread. Next we will reach the Fish Lake (Balik Golu). We will be able to there spend one or two nights.
