Mount Ararat, 5,137m – An adventurous and stunning 5,000m+ mountain summit.
Agri Dag or Mount Ararat as it is also known, is the highest mountain in Turkey, standing at a mighty 5,137m in the far northeast of the country in the Armenian Highland. Ararat consists of two major volcanic cones: Greater Ararat and Little Ararat.
Many believe it is the spot where Noah’s Ark came to rest after the Great Flood, and numerous expeditions have been mounted in recent years to try and find evidence of it. The mountain has a permanent glacier cap and is in fact a dormant volcano which last erupted in 1840.
