The whole expedition was full of difficulties, but we overcame them, helping and inspiring each other. Our boys were assisting girls with a desire to mitigate the anxiety of the trip.
On the way we sang different patriotic songs, tried to keep the Armenian spirit in the mountains.
We climbed about 14 km to the top. A unique indescribable beauty was around us. In the center of four tops a crater was spreading, and the Stone Lake was under our feet. On the top of the mountain we danced victorious and folk dances. It was snowing, but we continued singing and dancing.
