27 August 01 September 2022
Turkey’s highest mountain Ararat (Ağrı), has a legendary status due to its geologic
location and the fact that it is believed to have been the final resting place of
Noah’s Ark. This peak, mentioned in the Bible, has several names in different
languages, the main ones being Ararat, Kuh – i Nuh and Cebel ul Haristir.
Mount Ararat (5137m) is the highest peak in Turkey. It is a volcanic mountain
made up of basalt, which changes to andesite lava around 4000 m. At the summit
there is a glacier, and on the eastern slope is the Serdarbulak ridge, with Kucuk
(Little) Ararat at 3896m. The height of Mount Ararat, along with its glaciers,
geological formations, people, and mountain meadows covered snow has an
alluring, almost magical appearance.
