Visiting LAKE SEVAN Armenia Սևանա լիճ
This was a spontaneous trip to Lake Sevan Սևանա լիճ the biggest lake in Armenia and one of the biggest in the world. It was a fairly simple trip, I caught two busses from Yerevan, one to the northern bus station and then one from there. I also visited the Sevanavank monastery.

THE BIGGEST LAKE IN ARMENIA LAKE SEVAN
Click here to support my channel:
In this video, I have shared my experience of Hitchhiking from Dilijan to Sevan Lake & visiting the Sevanvank Monastery. In this period I have covered a distance of 60 km in just 45 minutes & spent some time at the beach of Sevan lake & rest of the time at Sevanvank Monastery.
Lake Sevan (Armenian: Սևանա լիճ) is the most substantial body of water in Armenia and the Caucasus region. It is one of the most massive freshwater high-altitude (alpine) lakes in Eurasia. The lake is situated in Gegharkunik Province, at an altitude of 1,900 m (6,234 ft) above sea level. The total surface area of its basin is about 5,000 km2 (1,900 sq mi), which makes up 1⁄6 of Armenia's territory. The lake itself is 1,242 km2 (480 sq mi), and the volume is 32.8 km3 (7.9 cu mi). It is fed by 28 rivers and streams. Only 10% of the incoming water is drained by the Hrazdan River, while the remaining 90% evaporates.
The lake provides some 90% of the fish and 80% of the crayfish catch of Armenia. Sevan has significant economic, cultural, and recreational value. Its only island (now a peninsula) is home to a medieval monastery.
Sevan was heavily exploited for irrigation of the Ararat plain and hydroelectric power generation during the Soviet period. Consequently, its water level decreased by around 20 m (66 ft) and its volume reduced by more than 40%. Two tunnels were later built to divert water from highland rivers, which halted its decline and its level began rising. Before human intervention dramatically changed the lake's ecosystem, the lake was 95 m (312 ft) deep, covered an area of 1,416 km2 (547 sq mi) (5% of Armenia's entire area), and had a volume of 58.5 km3 (14.0 cu mi). The lake's surface was at an altitude of 1,916 m (6,286 ft) above sea level.

Lake Sevan, Armenia

Sevan Monastery, Lake Sevan, Armenia
Sevanavank (Armenian: Սևանավանք; meaning Sevan Monastery) is a monastic complex located on a peninsula at the northwestern shore of Lake Sevan in the Gegharkunik Province of Armenia, not far from the town of Sevan. Initially the monastery was built at the southern shore of a small island. After the artificial draining of Lake Sevan, which started in the era of Joseph Stalin, the water level fell about 20 metres, and the island transformed into a peninsula. At the southern shore of this newly created peninsula, a guesthouse of the Armenian Writers' Union was built. The eastern shore is occupied by the Armenian president's summer residence, while the monastery's still active seminary moved to newly constructed buildings at the northern shore of the peninsula.
Due to easier accessibility (once it became a peninsula), good highway and railway connections with the Armenian capital Yerevan, a well-developed tourist industry in the nearby town of Sevan, and its picturesque location (although less picturesque than it was before the lake level drop), Sevanavank is one of the most visited tourism sights in Armenia.
Pearls of Armenia, Part 2: Lake Sevan-Garni-Gerhard
Pearls of Armenia, Part 2 will cover 2 destinations:
1. Garni Temple and Fortress (Just south of main road through town, well signposted). The temple complex perched above the canyon of the Azat river. Its center piece is the Hellenistic temple built in the 1st C BC - this was smashed by an earthquake in 1679 but reconstructed in the 1970s. Also here are the medieval main gate and fortifications, the circular foundations of a church built in 897 AD, walls of a two-storey royal summer palace built by the Urartians in the 8th C BC, a Roman-era bath house, and a cemetery.
2. Geghard Monastery (5 km east of Garni is a revered 11th century monastery. Much of it is carved out of the solid stone of the mountain side, in dramatic canyon setting. The Monastery and canyon are UNESCO World Heritage sites. The fortified compound encloses the main church, holy springs, an upper chamber with unparalleled acoustics and many intricate khachkars. The Geghard was supposedly the Roman spear that pierced Jesus' side; this relic was long housed here but is now in Echmiadzin.
Road condition from M4 Highway, M15 & H3 Roads are from Fair to Poor with the Philippine Road conditions as basis.
Enjoy & have a safe trip!!!

Armenian Wild CRAYFISH KEBABS + Medieval MONASTERY Tour | Lake Sevan, Armenia
My fourth day in Armenia continued with a trip to Lake Sevan, the largest lake in the country and the main source of Armenia’s fish. Join me as I enjoy some wild crayfish kebabs and tour a medieval monastery near Lake Sevan, Armenia!
Dargett Craft Beer: |
My afternoon started at the Dargett Brewery about 20 minutes outside of Yerevan. Dargett Brewery is the number one brewing company in Armenia. I’d visited their facility in Yerevan the previous night. Then, we’d head out to Lake Sevan!
At this facility, my guide Lusine and I started by checking out their malts and learning about their six-barrel system. Next, it was time to try some beer directly from the tanks.
I started with a Pale Ale, which had a nice head and was perfect for the heat outside. It was light and light on the hops. Next was a Belgian-style triple, a delicious German Pilsner.
Next, we went to the bottling room. They bottle all of their 7 core beers here and send them to restaurants and supermarkets all over Armenia.
Then, I got to try their exclusive Armenian Imperial Stout. It’s 10% alcohol and has been aged in brandy barrels. It had a nice and had a nice head. It was strong but delicious!
Then, we headed to Lake Sevan, which is about 35 minutes away. It’s located 1,900 meters above sea level in the Gegham Mountains.
We climbed 245 steps to the top of the peninsula, where we get a great view of the lake. Along the way, I saw a typical Armenian cross-stone carving called a khachkar. On it was an Armenian-style cross, a tree of life, and more!
At the top of the stairs are two beautiful churches of the Sevanavank Monastery, a 9th-century monastic complex. I loved the gorgeous view of the lake and the mountains. It’s one of the largest high-altitude lakes in the world.
Inside one of the churches is another khachkar. There are thousands of them in Armenia, but this one is unique because it’s one of only 4 that have Jesus Christ carved on them. There were also lots of figures, symbols, writing on them. You shouldn’t touch them, though!
Outside are the ruins of the Spiritual Educational Center, where the monks of Sevanavank Monastery lived. Only the foundations are left.
On our way back down the stairs, I couldn’t help but admire the beautiful peninsula and the valley. The church closes at 6 p.m., so you shouldn’t arrive later than 5 p.m. But now it was time to go have some Armenian crayfish kebabs after our monastery tour of Lake Sevan!
At the bottom of the hill is Ashot Erkat Restaurant. They have a huge dining hall with incredible views overlooking the lake. I went back to the kitchen, where I saw them making barbecue fish and crayfish kebabs. They use crayfish tail meat only and wrap it in lavash. I couldn’t wait to eat them!
The house wine was really nice! I loved the crayfish kebab. It was made of minced crayfish tail meat. I got it plain, without ketchup or onions. The crayfish tail meat and lavash was such an amazing combination! Crayfish are almost like small, gamy lobster. It was so good, but I couldn’t eat it all because I had dinner to eat later!
What an epic afternoon that took me from Dargett Brewery to having Armenian crayfish kebabs after touring a medieval monastery on Lake Sevan! It was such a fun day and it still wasn’t over yet!
