It is not so easy, but I will assume that you are familiar with the international phonetics nomenclatures>

In Armenian is written>

Ծաղկաձոր

 This is the pronunciation with all the phonemes separated for an easy understanding, they are written twice based on the classical phonemes and the western ones> I hope that this will help you...

/dz/      /ɑ/       /ɫ/        /k/          /ɑ/             /dz/           /o/        /ɾ/

/ts/       /ɑ/       /ʁ/       /ɡ/         /ɑ/           /tsʰ/           /o/       /ɹ/

By the way, Tsaghkadzor literally means valley of flowers in Armenian
