Amazing experience. Even though it was a very misty day and was not possible to fully appreciate the surroundings, it was a great way to understand the culture and past of the region. Be ready to climb lots of stairs! We were lucky enough to get snow when we reach to the top of lake Sevan monastery :D Highly recommended!
