      An ancient legend says that once the mountains Ararat and Aragats stood nearby and were loving sisters. But once they argued, failing to decide which of them is taller and more beautiful. The wise Maruta mount tried to reconcile the sisters, but all her attempts were in vain. Desperate, she cursed them: the mountains were separated from each other. From grief on the top of Aragats mount a whole lake of tears appeared. The lake still exists today, and its name is “Kari Lich”, which is translated as “Stone Lake”. The lake is located quite high on the slope of Mount Aragats. For most of the year, snow does not melt here, so the water in Kari Lake is always very cold. It is located at an altitude of 3200 meters and most of the time is surrounded by snow, so the water in the lake is quite cold.
