Mount Ararat

Mount Ararat

In the far east of Turkey lies Mount Ararat; the twin peaks of this dormant volcano boast the highest summit in Turkey, and legend has it that the remains of Noah's Ark lie on the snow-capped slopes. Many tours are available to climb or even ski Mount Ararat (solo climbing without a guide and permit is not permitted). The climb to the top is relatively easy and requires a basic level of fitness, but is suitable for non-professional climbers.

For those not wishing to climb Mount Ararat, the local Kurdish villages situated on the foot of the mountain can be a great cultural experience while the nearby town of Do�xubayaz�±t provides stunning views of the mountain and is home to the second largest meteor crater in the world. Noah's Ark National Park at Mount Ararat is home to a museum dedicated to what is believed to be the fossilised remains of the ark. It is at the park that this controversial site can be viewed by the public.
