#4 of 11 in Things to do in Dilijan
Unwind in pristine forest surrounding Lake Parz, a small lake in Dilijan National Park. Standing at 1,334 m (4,377 ft), the lake provides an well-known picnicking escape, offering fresh air and tranquility. Row your zodiac or rent a powerboat to cross the lake, which extends some 385 m (1,263 ft) by 100 m (328 ft), or bike to explore scenic trails. Tennis facilities and a shooting range provide entertainment. There is a restaurant serving traditional food here, and you can feed swans, ducks, and squirrels.

  • Excellent hike but the lake itself is overrated, over developed and commercialized. 5000 AMD taxi ride back to Dilijan, but we walked back in 4 hours.  more »
  • We got to this place in the rain. We drove our car. The last 4 km road is very broken. The lake is not interesting - small and you can not swim. Only ride the boat and slide over it on a rope for 5000 drams. And it's almost always raining here. That's what we hit. We sat in the only cafeteria, waiting for it, where we included an extra 8000 drams - the percentage for the service - tin. We gave away 21,000 drams for food, half of which we didn't order. Then the rain ran out and we thought to walk around the clay, if you understand what it is. Two meters along the path we were able to pass, until the legs there drowned on the ankle. And that's the end of our journey through this reserve. I don't recommend anyone to go there. Dirt is almost always. The chance to get on the dry trail is minimal, according to locals. There's nothing to do there.
