Khashtarak (Armenian: Խաշթառակ, also Romanized as Khasht’arrak and Khashtarrak) is a village in the Tavush Province of Armenia. Within the village is a recently built church, and nearby west and southeast are abandoned medieval settlements with khachkars.

Recently, Khashtarak has witnessed many charitable activities applied by the All-Armenia Fund. The medical centre of the village, the kindergarten and the public-education school were all renovated by the efforts of Diasporan Armenians.
