If you have a close look at the map of Armenia, you will sure see that it looks like a head of a girl with long hair and a blue brooch on it. That very brooch is the Lake Sevan which decorates not only the map, but also the land of Armenia. It is one of the largest high altitude lakes in the world.

 

The trip to Sevan is undoubtedly one of the most exciting ones in Armenia. This wonder of nature is surrounded by Geghama Mountains. The sweet waters, sandy beaches and fresh air attract holiday makers every year. Man and the nature have never been as harmonious as it is here, in Sevan. Really you will enjoy an unforgettable pass-time here.

Situated in the northern part of Armenian volcanic highland in Gegharkounik region, Lake Sevan has a unique combination of great size, high mountain location, and comparatively “soft water”. Lake Sevan is the greatest lake in the Caucasian region, and one of the greatest freshwater high-mountain lakes of Eurasia. It is located at about 2000 meters above the sea level. The basin of Lake Sevan makes up one sixth of the total territory of Armenia.

The water is about 18-22 C in summer which gives you an opportunity to refresh after a hot week in the stuffy city. There is only a little amount of salt in the water, so you can freely swim without thinking of further consequences. The lake’s colors and shades change with the weather from a dazzling azure to dark blue and thousands of shades. This freshwater lake protects a healthy fish population. Ishkhan (in Armenian means “knight”), the local species of trout is the main feature of the lake. The fish has received its name due to a row of spots like crown on its head. The method of cooking it is also typical to this region. And even when it is not the time for swimming, people come here to taste it.

Once a famous Russian poet Maxim Gorky said about the beauty of our lake: “The waters are like pieces of the sky that have descended to the earth among the mountains.” And indeed, the water is so pure and of such a pleasant blue color that sitting on the beach you may confuse which one is the lake, and which one is the sky. On a nice sunny weather you can discern the sunshine, as well as the reflection of the sky in the waters. The combination of the blue sky with the blue waters is so wonderful that you can never take your eyes away from that heaven. And on a nice evening when the beach is quiet and the lake is a bit wavy you can always wander on the beach feeling the pleasant sand on your feet. The only noise that can get to your ears will be the sound of the water and the waterfowls enjoying the fresh air.
