X-WATERS SEVAN 2019

International swim in the largest lake of Armenia

September 7-8
2019

Lake Sevan, Armenia
Distances 6 km; 1 mile

Supported by:
SAVAGE OF SEVAN

WHAT'S THE CHALLENGE?

Sevan lake is the largest lake in Armenia and the whole Caucasus, the main natural symbol of Armenia, a place of incredible beauty and strength, requiring, at the same time, a special approach.

- The lake is located at an altitude of 1900 m above sea level, where your body works differently, please, keep this in mind!
- Sevan is 940 square km of open water, which means waves and currents typical for large water bodies;
- Whatever hot it is in the valley, it's always cool here, at high altitude. Expected water temperature is 18-20 C;
- Picturesque coastline: dense forests, cliffs, steppes, meadows and distant snow peaks.


The swim takes place in partnership with Savage of Sevan, the main organizer of amateur cycle starts in Armenia.

Sevan is the main natural symbol of Armenia. The Sevan peninsula and the Sevanavank monastery located there are the main historical and cultural symbols of Sevan. Here we will start the distance of 6 km. Then while crossing the lake we will go north to the hotel "Blue Sevan".

1 mile distance: the starting point is marked on the map, the route runs along the shore. The finish is at the hotel "Blue Sevan".

NATURE MIRACLE

Armenia is an extremely hospitable country with a rich history, the world's first Christian state. The ancient relic lake Sevan ‑ "Pearl of Armenia" or "Gegham Sea" - is one of the largest high-mountain freshwater lakes in the world. This is a real miracle of nature located in the heart of the Armenian highlands in a huge mountain bowl framed by picturesque mountain ranges at an altitude of 1900 m!

Sevan, mentioned many times in poetry and prose, is truly fascinatingly beautiful. Moreover, it is surrounded by numerous churches, created in a completely unique style of Armenian architecture. Its transparent waters can change the color surprisingly: in sunny weather, they are gently-turquoise, in windy weather they are severe gray, and at night they are silver. Whatever Sevan appears to you, you will remember it for the rest of your life!
