Travel and Accommodation

Tsaghkadzor is a city located in Kotayk Region, 5 km north-east of the province center of Hrazdan (the Republic of Armenia). The city distance from Yerevan is 50 km, at 1841 meters above sea level. The main part of city is spread on the eastern slope of Mount Teghenis. It is the leading ski resort of the country.

As a settlement Tsaghkadzor is known from ancient times. In Armenian Tsaghkadzor means “the valley of flowers”. The name of Tsaghkadzor is associated with the name of Tsaghkuniats Mountains. In the early medieval it was used as a hunting ground for the Armenian Arshakuni Kings. In the 6th century, the territory passed into possession of the famous Kamsarakans’ family. In the 10th century the clan of Kamsarakan was replaced with the Pahlavunis’.

Organizers will arrange your transfer from Yerevan to Tsakhadzor on the race day if you choose to stay in Yerevan, but there are many decent hotels in Tsakhadzor and we recommend you to book your hotel near the event location.

            For those who consider 1800m above sea level altitude a challenge we strongly recommend spending at least 1-2 pre-race days in Tsakhadzor for proper acclimatization.

World class Olympic pool, training facilities equipped with the modern training equipment and designed for wide variety of sport types, the Complex has always been a lovely training spot for many European and CIS athletes.
