Debeda hydrological region
The Dzoraget (Armenian: Ձորագետ) is a river in the Debeda hydrological region in the Lori region in Northern Armenia. It originates in the Bazum Mountains and flows west to east through spectacular gorges around Stepanavan. It finally feeds into the Debed river near Dzoragyugh, which ultimately drains to the Kura river.
Dzoraget is a compound word in Armenian meaning Gorge-river and formed with the lexemes ձոր [dzɔɾ] ('gorge') and գետ [ɡetʰ] ('river') joined by the interfix ա [ɑ].
The gorge in certain places (e.g. at Kurtan) is over 200 meters in depth.
