Among the lakes there are Akna, Lake Vanki, Vishapalich, and also a lake formed in the crater of Greater Azhdahak. The climate here is moderately continental, with a short cool summer and a long cold winter. At the very top, near the peaks, there is always a cold mountain climate. The average annual temperature in the foothills is 4-6 ° C, in the mountains 0-2 °, and at the peaks -2 °. The annual rainfall is from 500 to 900 mm, the thickness of the snow cover is from 30 to 100 cm.
