The name is associated with the mythical evil dragon Ajdahak, common in Armenian and Iranian mythology. The name Ajdahak originates in Armenian mythology, which means half man, half dragon.. The hike is extremely picturesque. In summer, the fields leading to the mountain are dotted with snowfields and spring valleys. When you go to Ajdahak, it seems that you are crossing the seasons. The mountain is of volcanic origin and has a blood-red color, which makes it easily distinguishable from other hills and mountains. But the most impressive sight awaits you at the top of the mountain. There is a breathtaking view of the Geghama Mountains and their surroundings. But the most beautiful thing is an absolutely majestic crater lake that will conquer you right away. The view of the lake opens instantly as soon as you take your last step up. Its beauty is a real reward for a long hike and a steep climb. The water from the snowmelt lake in the Azhdakhak crater is usually considered suitable for drinking.
