Lake Sevan



More than 6,000 ft/1,900 m above sea level, Sevan is the largest lake in the Transcaucasian region. The lake's color seems to change throughout the day. The lake level was once much higher, but an irrigation/hydroelectric plan in Stalin's time significantly reduced the size. Rent a sailboat or paddleboat from the yacht club near Sevan, or stay on land and visit the nearby ninth-century churches. Although there are a lot of things to do around the lake, swimming in the frigid water is only for the brave. 45 mi/75 km north of Yerevan.
