The most visited destination of the lake is the peninsula known as kghzi, meaning island, which it once was before Stalin had much of the water drained from the lake. The monastery is a must, for the great views it affords of the vast lake, most of which visitors never see except from this spot. The monastery is on top of the peninsula hill, and is built of crude black stone on the exterior. The interior has a beautiful old altar used for services by the new seminary down the hill.
Noratus - largest khachkar cemetary in the world.
Hayrivank - a rarely visited monastery overlooking Lake Sevan.
North shore: The north and west shore of the lake is much calmer than the area around around sevan city. The hills right behind mage nice hikes.
