Lake Sevan is the largest lake in Armenia, covering about 5% of the country’s area. Sevan is situated at 1900 metres above sea level and winters here are long and cold, but during the summer months lots of people come here for holiday to swim.

I stayed by the beach at the busy Sevan Peninsula, but there are more quiet places. When I was in Dilijan I met a couple who had spent some days in Chorja on the north side of the lake. It is a calm, relaxing place and they recommended it. I have heard the north side has cleaner water than the south coast, where there are some factories.
