More Info

Rising to 5,137 meters, Mount Ararat is a dormant compound volcano in the very east of Turkey. In addition to its main peak, the mountain has a minor summit, Little Ararat (3,896 m).

Trekking to the top generally takes four to five days and requires a high level of physical fitness. A permit is also required to climb the mountain. Your guide will almost always be the one to acquire the permit for you, but it does take a couple of months to process them.

Depending on the conditions, only hiking is required to get the top. In certain conditions, you may need crampons. Elevation is the main issue, which is why most trips hike high and sleep low all the way up.
