Gezdek was a winter pasture located in the territory of the Borchali uezd of the Tiflis governorate, later in the former Barana (Noyemberyan) district, and present-day Tavush province. The winter pasture was part of the Lambali soviet (soviet – a territory in which the activities of local government bodies were carried out).

The pasture was inhabited by nine Azerbaijanis in 1926. In 1930 it was merged with the village of Lambali and dissolved.

The toponym was coined on the basis of the word “gezdek” used in the sense of “wide cracks in the upper and middle mountain ridges”, “a ruined, sunken place”, “a pass, hollow on the top of a mountain” in Azerbaijani.
