Not so many people come here, so it is a good alternative to Sevanavank, if you do not like to deal with tourists! Either take a minibus from Sevan, or hitch hike.

The monastery is near the lake Sevan and to reach it I made a pleasant walk to the hill where there is a nice view on the lake. The monastery is small but attractive.

One of the most amazing churches in Armenia. Built around 10th century this small but very impressive church located on the shore of lake Sevan is one of the most impressive buildings in Armenia. Must see.

Little monastery with a nice view over the lake. We stopped there on our way and liked the place. It's not very touristic so it kept its charm. However, I'm not sure if it's worth a special trip
