Located at 1800-1900 meters above sea level, Khachik is perched atop the Vayots Dzor highlands. Every fall the village gathers for a festival to celebrate gata - the delicious Armenian dessert that makes magic out of flour, butter, and sugar. During the festival, visitors have the chance to experience gata - both by baking and eating it, while enjoying folk music and dances, participating in games and shopping in a marketplace of local arts and crafts.

The highlight of the Gata Festival? Tasting the largest gata in the world, prepared by the village bakers. The biggest gata, which gets bigger and bigger each year, is something you shouldn't miss out on.
