Avan Marak Tsapatagh Hotel
The Avan Marak Tsapatagh hotel is located in the rural outskirts of Tsapatagh, a small farming village on the shores of Lake Sevan. It is 126 km northeast of Yerevan.
Tsapatagh is a small village in Gegharkunik Province near Lake Sevan which Armenians consider a sea. It is the largest water surface in the country. Thus, many archaeological treasures of antiquity appeared here. The territory of Lake Sevan has a rich history. A complex of graveyards dating back to the Bronze Age has been discovered here. The Urartians probably gave the name to the lake. The word Urartean Ṣue (sowe) means "sea". Sevanavank is located on the northwestern shore of Lake Sevan. The monastery was on a small lake island that was inhabited until the end of the 8th century. The intensive use of lake water for agricultural irrigation during the Soviet period and in the subsequent period dramatically lowered the water level, making the old island a peninsula. The monastery and its surroundings, the lake and the nature are just wonderful and make it a dream destination for tourists. The warm climate makes the hotel and its surroundings an ideal place for recreation where tourists can relax by the lake.
