Mount Ararat - the only mountain over 5000 meters high in Turkey
Climbing / Trekking Mount Ararat is not difficult in summer. Although Mount Ararat is 5,137 meters above sea level, it does not present a difficult technical challenge for those who lead an active sports life, often hiking, running regularly, etc.
No special technical training is required to climb Mount Ararat. Good physical condition and the desire to climb the mountain will do just fine. There are no cracks or steep turns on the way to the summit. To successfully climb Mount Ararat, a good acclimatization and the company of a qualified guide are sufficient.
It is much more convenient if someone who was born and raised there organizes the ascent of Ararat for you. A very experienced team awaits you! You will see a completely different culture and way of life.
You will climb 5137 meters, believe it with us!
On the first day, in the course of the morning, an all-terrain minibus or the loading area of a truck is used to drive to the starting point. After the small mud hut village of Eli, it goes up a slope as far as possible towards the base camp. The current state of the route determines the end point of the journey. The escort team and the Kurds with their pack animals are waiting there. Then you will climb about 1000 meters on foot to the base camp. The second day is used to encourage acclimatization by climbing very slowly to the high camp. Via a clearly visible path, you can easily reach a place in four hours where the tents are set up on some tiny platforms. After a longer rest, we return to the base camp.
On the third day, we climb up to the high camp a second time and spend the night. On the day of the summit, the start is still between three and four o'clock during the night. A striking ridge is reached over boulders, over which one climbs rather steeply and laboriously up to about 4900 meters to the beginning of the harmless, fairly flat summit glacier. The summit goal becomes visible and, depending on your ability, will be reached after an additional hour and a half and a total of five to six hours. Mountaineers in good physical condition can easily descend the almost 2000 meters in altitude to the base camp. On the fifth day, the descent to the piste and the return trip to Dogubayazit takes place.
