Armenia Tip 101. Lake Sevan
On our last day in Armenia, our lunch commenced in Lake Sevan. It is a famous lake and the largest body of water in Armenia.
History. According to many geologists’ theories, Lake Sevan has a volcanic origin. The lake originated after igneous lava has closed three streams of Hrazdan River. This formed a huge pool. Gradually this pool was filled with water and in this way Sevan was formed.
Rain. We went for a walk near the shoreline but the rained poured so we had to go fast for shelter. Though it rained a bit during our visit, the beauty of the lake was still prominent and the after-rain landscape perhaps contributed to the magnificence of the view.
Lunch time! The best thing about the restaurant where we ate was that they gave us free towels! We were wet with rain. Maybe they are already used to having rains (what we miss in Dubai always!) from time to time that they lend free towels to customers. Food was delicious! Sadly, I forgot the name of the restaurant. If anyone has been there and knows, comment it below!
Instagram-worthy spot. After the rain, we headed to Sevanavank Monastery and the view there was just perfect - truly an instagram worthy spot! All the autumn beauty shouts it madness echoing grace to the beautiful shining blue lake. You will be mesmerized. They say Lake Sevan is known to change its colours from various shades of blue and green depending on the season. I wonder how it looks like during the other seasons? But in autumn, I assure you, the view from the lake is the reason why it must be on your Armenia tour bucket list!
