is a magnificent sprawling dome whose
snow covered summit is 5165m. high. It lies in Eastern Turkey near the
Iranian border and is the highest mountain in Turkey. The earliest
recorded mountain ascent in the world is that of Mount Ararat by Noah.
Most Christians believe it is the site where Noah's Ark came to rest
after the "Great Flood". A climb of Mt. Ararat is a tough walk
(non-technical but requiring a good deal of stamina). The upper third of
the volcano is covered in snow and the last hundred meters to the summit
can be icy requiring crampons, ski poles and maybe a rope.
Meeting and welcome reception at the Hotel Sim-er in Doğubayazıt.
Introduction to mount climbing techniques and presentation of the Mt.
Ararat by the Professional Guide. Visit Noah's Ark and that of the Ishak
Dinner and overnight is at the hotel.
After a delicious Turkish breakfast, each of the members of the climbing
team is checked for climbing eligibility at the Control Centre and gets
then the climbing bags and equipments. First stop is a picnic at the
Village Ele of an altitude of 2200 m. Next we get our horses and mules
and proceed towards our dream pinnacle at the Mt. Ararat. Horse and mule
riding lasts about 5-6 hours. In the course of road one can take
photographs of the yurts and the tents of transhumance. We now reach an
altitude of 3200 m. We then camp here; an environment full of greenery
We prepare our meals and enjoy dinner before sleep.
After a copious breakfast being composed of foods of mountains we
continue to climbing and reach our 2nd camp of an altitude of 4200 m.
This part of the track is hard, not easy; full of dust and stones. One
feels like as the mountain goats. This hard track lasts about 3h. After
3hs of hard track, we create a camping place; one cleans the place of
our tents for camping. Time to have launch. After the lunch our Guide
briefs us about the Summit of Mt, Ararat (Ağrı Dağı). From here, one
contemplates the Small Mt. Ararat, Doğubayazıt, together with Iran. We
also see the Pinnacle of the Mount Ararat.
After dinner, we rest for a while and go to sleep early to be fresh for
next hard day. It is worth noting that one needs special clothing since
the altitude is high and the weather is cold and dry.
Today is the day of the Dream Summit. With the dawn (sometimes at 01h30
sometimes at 2h, sometimes at 3h, according to the season and time),
after having carried out our last preparations, again we get under way
for the Summit. Our guide is very attentive. He informs us again about
the climbing process and details; the last and the most important
information concerning the Summit. One walks attentively and gently. We
will admire an unique exceptional landscape under the shining sun. One
feels the shade of the Mt. Ararat Mount under his/her feet; it covers
all the plain and one is impressed and affected deeply.
At the altitude of 4900 m. ices start. Here and there are the assembling
fixed stations. One puts his/her cramps on and walks in discipline on
the same line within the safety measures. The Summit is in front of you
at the altitude of 5137 m. Eventually, the dream is carried out
exceptionally. The climax of Europe is in front of you and emotions are
Presence of a continuous strong wind at the Pinnacle prevents one to
stay a long time at the top of the Mt. Ararat. We still, however, have a
downwards walk on the high plateau with ices. The de-climbing is carried
out in the same discipline (but with fun) as that of climbing. Walk this
time lasts 8h. It is difficult to sleep at 4200 m altitude, thus one
continues to de-climbing until the attitude of 3200 m.
Time to enjoy a warm delicious dinner and to rest until the next day.
Day of return. After having dismounted the tents and equipment we take
our mules and camels again. This downwards walk with mules and camels
lasts about 5 hours. We finally switch over to our waiting truck. Truck
brings us to our hotel within an hour.
We deserve now to celebrate the realization of our dream at our hotel. A
a nice barbeque, a hot shower awaits us.
Dinner and overnight is at the Hotel Sim-er in Doğubayazıt.
After the breakfast, we leave our hotel to depart to our destinations.
