After your driver (guide) picks you up from your hotel in Yerevan, you will head to the main ski resort of Armenia - Tsaghkadzor, which is a very hospitable city, where the beauty of nature is displayed in all its glory. Everything here is designed for high-quality rest, and a very big role in it has the cable car, which was built with high European standards. A 6175m long ski-lift takes skiers from an altitude of 1966m to 2819m above sea level. You can take the cable car if you wish in order to enjoy the beautiful views from above.
You will visit the main monastery of the town -Kecharis, which is a medieval Armenian monastic complex dating back to the 11th to 13th centuries, located 60 km from Yerevan. In the 12th and 13th centuries, Kecharis was a major religious center of Armenia and a place of higher education. Today, the monastery has been fully restored and is clearly visible from the ski slopes.
Another stop will be at lake Sevan. It is the largest lake in the Caucasus. It is one of the largest freshwater high-altitude (alpine) lakes in Eurasia. The lake is situated in Gegharkunik Province, at an altitude of 1,900.44 m above sea level. It is fed by 28 rivers and streams. The lake provides 90% of the fish and 80% of the crayfish catch of Armenia.
Standing at the top of the peninsula, you can visit Sevanavank monastery. Initially, the monastery was built at the southern shore of a small island. After the artificial draining of Lake Sevan, which started in the era of Joseph Stalin, the water level fell about 20 meters, and the island transformed into a peninsula.
At the southern shore of this newly created peninsula, a guesthouse of the Armenian Writers' Union was built. The eastern shore is occupied by the Armenian president's summer residence, while the monastery's still active seminary moved to newly constructed buildings at the northern shore of the peninsula.
