Lake Sevan is considered to be one of the prides of Armenian highlands. The locals gave the name “blue-eyed queen”, while the Armenian poet Paruyr Sevak has talked about it as “In the heights of Sevan, the sky makes its copy” (literal translation). Lake Sevan is located 1,900 meters above sea level. This is one of the largest reserves of freshwater. The length of the lake is 70km. Besides being a touristic attraction of Armenia, the lake has got a huge role in the agriculture sector as well, as the lands of Ararat valley are being irrigated from Hrazdan (river originating from Sevan Lake).
Next to Noratus village, in the western coast of lake Sevan there is located the largest Kachkars or cross-stone field in Armenia .
