Lake Sevan is a serene and enchanting destination that showcases Armenia's natural splendour. Its pristine and azure waters are surrounded by lush greenery and stunning mountain vistas, creating a tranquil and awe-inspiring setting. The lake is one of the largest high-altitude freshwater lakes in the world.

During the summer months, Lake Sevan has become a haven for visitors seeking relaxation and outdoor activities. You can enjoy boating, swimming, and picking along the lakeshore. Sevanavank, an ancient monastic complex perched on a peninsula, offers a glimpse into Armenia's rich history and provides panoramic views of the lake.

The town of Sevan and nearby villages offer a variety of local cuisine, including delicious fish dishes, as the lake is renowned for its diverse fish species.

While Lake Sevan's natural beauty is its primary draw, it's important to note that environmental conservation efforts are crucial to preserving its water quality and ecosystems.

Visiting Lake Sevan provides a wonderful opportunity to connect with Armenia's natural and cultural heritage, making it a must-visit destination for travellers interested in both adventure and history.

Sevan Lake is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Armenia, which is located near the city of Yerevan. This lake has an ideal climate in summers and can be included in the list of tourist places in this country to spend good hours. In addition to the fun you can have by Sevan Lake, there are historical attractions such as several famous churches around this lake, which will generally take you a whole day to visit.

One of the beautiful spots in the whole of Armenia. This lake is a 90 minute drive from Yerevan.

The place has a small church from where you can see the whole lake view and that is mesmerizing.

There is a tent like stay set up nearby a lake where you can spend a night. It is expensive though. There is no need to stay as it is easily accessible from Yerevan.

Must visit place when in Armenia.

Lovely lake with the option of taking a boat out on it. Nice view when you walk up to the top of hill. Eateries around the lake to sit and enjoy. Not sure about swimming but there were many locals swimming around)
One of the best attractions not too far from Yerevan.

The view was breath taking. The lake was so blue, and there were seagulls flying everywhere. What I love the most about the place is where I discovered the lake's moonstone. It can be bought at the local market beside the lake.

A beautiful lake with turquoise water and a scenic view of ice capped mountains of the Geghama mountain range. The lake earlier contained a lot more of water level, but due to agricultural development water was used which led to drop in the level. However the government has been actively trying to increase the water level which has risen up to 1-1.5 meters in recent years.

Nature aside, the area is known for some delicious food and to be Armenia’s ‘fish’ hub. You can get some of the most delicious freshwater fish from Lake Sevan and the preparation of it in and around Sevan is just incredible. It is a reason to travel there all in itself!

One of the largest 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.

This is a magical place. The lake is awesome with very clean water. In the island you find the monasteries which add up the beauty of the place.
I will definitely visit again when in Armenia. We visited I. The winter it was very cold but it is worth every minute of it.
