Welcome to Mount Ararat Trekking Expeditions

Every year thousands of people just like you, set foot in Eastern Anatolia to climb Ararat, Turkey's highest peak.

Mount Ararat is located in Eastern Anatolia region of Turkey, near to border with Iran and Armenia.

Ararat is a place of myths and folklore. According to the Bible account to the Book of Genesis, Noah's Ark came to rest on the Mount Ararat after the great flood. In Armenian mythology Ararat is the home of Gods, much like Mount Olympus is in Greek mythology. 

First recorded ascent to the summit of Mount Ararat took place in 1829. Dr. Friedrich Parrot was the first explorer, who reached the summit in modern times.

Climbing Ararat does not require any technical skills or special equipment. Sometimes only cramons are required. Because of it not only experienced mountaineers, but also amateurs who do not have any experience in climbing, can explore slopes of Mount Ararat. 

We are a company offering high quality Ararat tours, guides and services at a reasonable cost. That is why hundreds of people climb with us annually, and why past clients refer us to their friends and families. Hundreds of people have stood on the summit of Mount Ararat with our guides.
