Sevan Pass

Sevan Pass

Sevan Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.130m (6,988ft) above the sea level, located in the Gegharkunik Province of Armenia.

The road to the summit is called H52. It’s asphalted but pretty steep. There are sheer drops virtually along the entire route and enough hairpins to make a whirling dervish dizzy. This route is not recommended if your passengers are prone to car sickness. The weather is unpredictable here, and if you are driving along a dry autumn road it doesn’t mean that in 300 metres you won’t get in winter with snow-covered mountains and hills and snow glistening like diamonds. The road is pretty wide but features many hairpin turns, especially challenging for trucks.

The road has dozens of hairpins turns, so the climb to the pass was bypassed by a tunnel. With such a high summit altitude the road can be closed anytime due to snowfalls. The zone is prone to heavy mist and can be dangerous in low visibility conditions. The view to Lake Sevan with its turquoise water is breathtaking.
