Lake Arpi National Park in Armenia
Videos | Gallery | Unexplored | Stories
Lake Arpi National Park is a wetlands national park in Armenia. Lake Arpi sits 2025m above see level and is the second largest lake in Armenia and is important for the biodiversity it attracts. Many Migratory birds and nesting birds, along with a unique biosphere have been supported by the WWF in marking this a place of special interest.
The largest colony of Armenian Gulls and the only nesting site for Dalmatian Pelican’s in Armenia, Lake Arpi National Park is an important place to preserve. In summer the air is cool due to the altitude and in winter the lake is frozen, so the climate is harsh, so the protection of fragile flora and fauna in the area is very important. Especially working together with the local population.
There are many tours to visit Lake Arpi National Park and the are opportunities to observe butterflies and bird watching here too. If you glimpse the threatened Marbled Polecat, Eurasian Otter or Asia Minor Ground Squirrel, all on the IUCN Red list, then send a photo in so we can show it below in the gallery.
