The fact that more than 90% of the territory of Armenia lies at an altitude of over 1000 meters above sea level, and also has a dissected landscape, and forms the climate in Armenia and its features. That is why the average temperature of Armenia, as in other mountainous countries, decreases by one degree as it rises to the mountains for every 200 meters of ascent.
On the plains, the average January temperature is –5 ° C, July +26 ° C; in the mountains, −14 ° C and +10 ° C, respectively.
That green nature of Armenia, which fascinates in spring and summer, in winter becomes white and no less beautiful. This can be seen, for example, in photos of Saghmosavank.
Tsakhkadzor ski resort is the main place that Armenia offers in the winter.
