Ughtasar

Mountain Ughtasar is located in the province of Syunik, at a height of 3000-3300 meters above sea level. It was called “camel mountain’’ due to its resemblance to the humps of a camel.

On the mountain saddle, near to the deep-blue Karst Lake, spreads a field full of large flat stones, embellished with countless enigmatic polygraphs. It is estimated that the polygraphs discovered in 1968 are between 4000-7000 years old. As goats are a frequently recurring motif in drawings, these pictograms were called itsagir, i.e. “goat writing’’.
