Lake Sevan

A lake, which locals call “sea’’... This small inland sea with its green mountains is the blue pearl of Armenia. 

It is four times as wide as Geneva Lake. Its turquoise water attracts thousands of Armenians to go swimming, and to sunbathe on the black or white sandy beaches.

No traveler should leave Armenia without experiencing the magic of Sevan Lake, a freshwater reservoir fed by 28 rivers from surrounding mountains. The surface area is 1200km². Sevan Lake is situated at an altitude of 1,918m above sea level and overlooks Ararat plateau. It is one of the largest mountain lakes in the world.
