LARGEST LAKE IN ARMENIA
Sevan (in Armenian: Sevana Lich) is the largest lake in Armenia and in the Caucasus.
Also, it is one of the largest freshwater high-altitude lakes (1900 m above sea level) in the world.
Not far from the lake, there is a medieval monastery – Sevanavank (874 AD).
Each year, more than 600 pairs of storks migrate from western Europe to Armenia, then to Africa.
They arrive before the winter comes and returns in the spring – for a nest.
The Surenavan village or “Storks’ Village” is located near to Noravank Monastery Complex.
