Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is totally worth the time to visit. The scenery of the lake as viewed from the Sevanavank monasteries is just breathtaking. Pictures just don’t do any justice to the beauty of Lake Sevan and its surroundings.

This is the largest lake in the Caucasus and an interesting location, with two churches located on top of the hill. Several recreational activities can be taken along the lake. Boat tours also available, although do not seem to really be essential.

Most visitors will see Lake Sevan from Sevanavank, which gives you the height for panoramic views. The lake is of enormous importance to Armenia, both historically symbolic and economic. It covers one 6th of the country and sits elevated at nearly 2km above sea level. It provides Armenia with drinking & irrigation water, electricity, tourism and a plethora of delicious fish.
As one of the three original Armenian lakes - the only one still within Armenian territory ! - and the home of Sevanavank, it remains a very special place for Armenians (who, in general, can hold very nationalistic views).

Beautiful views all around, there are restaurants nearby. Just be sure of the bill as they tend to overcharge by inflating the price or the quantity. Cheap gimmick to get some easy money.

Amazing scene, view from the top is stunning, boat ride is a must and you can negotiatethe price, few restaurants with direct view on the lake but food quality can be better. Best attraction in Yerevan for us.

There are great views along the lake and up towards the mountains. It's a huge place and there are some tourist attractions around it like hotels, restaurants and tourist boat rides.

Lovely lake with the option of taking a boat out on it. Nice view when you walk up to the top of hill. Eateries around the lake to sit and enjoy. Not sure about swimming but imagine we could have if our guide had told us we were going there.

Gem of the Armenia. A must to visit but too cold to swim in. And very windy. Clean, beautiful and a must see.
