The main road from  Talin  leads   W to Areg (till 1935 Pirmalak).  A dirt road before Areg leads up toward the summmit of Mt. Arteni, with a huge Urartian-medieval fortification. On the SE slopes of Mt. Arteni are the famous Lower Paleolithic-Neolithic sites of Satani-dar, Areguni-Blur, Yerkaruk-Blur.

   The first left fork  before  Areg   leads S on a newer road, passing Mt. Arteni on the E and leading past the village of Barozh (till 1935 Duzkend).
