Gtichavank (Armenian: Գտիչի վանք) is a 13th-century Armenian Apostolic Church monastery located in the district of Hadrut (historical country of Dizak) of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic, part of the historical Armenian province of Artsakh. Remains of the monastery may be reached by hikers via the Himnakan Janapar, part of a network of hiking trails extending through much of the Nagorno-Karabakh Republic.[1]
