Don't forget that the lake is situated at a high altitude (almost 2000 m above sea) so the Sun may be very dangerous whatever the weather. Should you swim, sunbath or just see the monastery, use the sunscreen with as high sun protection factor as possible and a good hat.

Noraduz is a small uninteresting village well known for its cross-stones, the khachkars. In the village cemetery's there are thousands of them, old and modern alike. These cross-stones are the best examples of the original manifestation of Armenian medieval culture. In this cemetery, where some of the khachkars date back to the 13th and 14th century, you should look out for the "embroidered" ones - they are amazing.
In the cemetery you can also find small chapels and several local sheperds busy watching over their sheep. Look at their dark complexion: they belong to a distinctive ethnic group. Noraduz is about 30 minutes drive from Sevan town.
