  • The clouds of Lake Sevan

    Sevan Favorites

    As Lake Sevan is around 1900m above sea level, the atmospheric effects for those of us who live pretty close to sea level are striking and unusual. I particularly like the way the clouds appear to roll down the mountain slopes into the lake. Four of these pictures are taken from the Sevanavank Peninsula and the fifth is an early morning shot of the...

    Sevan Things to Do

    Sevanavank peninsula is situated some kilometres from Sevan town.

    Sevan Things to Do

    Going back from the restaurant to my hut in the evening I passed two beach discos. There didn’t look to be so much more entertainment around, and on the dance floor were people in all ages and they all seemed to have fun.

    Khachkars - that is 'cross stones' - can be found all over Armenia. Most are likely to be from the 13th to 17th centuries, (although there are older examples and modern ones). They can be embedded in monastery walls but usually they are free-standing. Although there are obviously common motifs, it is said no two are identical. They appear singly or in groups. The 'group' in Noratus (next to the town cemetery) consists of about 900. I cannot vouch for that but there is a vast swathe of them - a quite unique and incredible sight. The pictures show some of a common pattern and others a little more unusual. Noratus is near the western shore of Lake Sevan, south of the Sevanavank Monastery and an easy drive from there, passing the small monastery of Hayrivank - with a just a few khachkars!
