We are watching views from the Lake Sevan as the car moves down the road. The lens stands on a rock and at the statue of Princess Tamar who is waiting for her love and it was created by Rafael Petrosyan.

We pass a small village and follow the lens to the mountainous volumes of the Little Caucasus. The road is steep with closed turns and we observe the passing vehicles.

Lake Sevan is situated at an altitude of 1900 meters, fed by 30 rivers. Due to human intervention, the ecosystem has changed dramatically.

Creator's description

From the top of the Sevan Pass the road makes a fairly steep 3,000-foot descent to the resort town of Dilizhan. I believe the Russian writer Maxim Gorky had something flattering to say about Dilizhan. Yes, here we are. He said: “Dilizhan is amazingly beautiful. The mountains seem to hug the valley and protect it with the love and tenderness of living creatures” etc etc. Sentimental rubbish I call that. Dilizhan is a nice enough place, but there’s nothing very wonderful about it.
