Shorzha is on the distant shore of Lake Sevan, with some very nice views and shoreline. For many years, people have come here for quiet, relaxation and contemplation. The party crowd sticks to the opposite shore and peninsula, known as Kghzi. The hills and shore are great for hiking, camping and swimming. They even say the cold waters of the lake are a bit warmer on this side. The border with Azerbaijan can be relatively close, depending on where you are, so check your maps before marching due east!

Flora and fauna

There are numerous wildflowers which bloom in the hills throughout the year. Some bloom in showy group displays in the spring, while others are subtly blooming in the grasses and meadows. Foxes and other animals are common.
