Mount Ararat

Mount Ararat is a snow-capped and dormant compound volcano in the extreme east of Turkey. It consists of two major volcanic cones: Greater Ararat and Little Ararat. Greater Ararat is the highest peak in Turkey and the Armenian plateau with an elevation of 5,137 m (16,854 ft). The Turkish name is Ağrı Dağı [aːɾɯ da.ɯ], Ottoman Turkish: اغـر طﺎﻍ‎ Ağır Dağ), i.e. “Mountain of Ağrı”. Ağrı literally translates to “pain” or “sorrow”. Mount Ararat is located in the Eastern Anatolia Region of Turkey between the provinces of Ağrı and Iğdır, near the border with Iran, Armenia and Nakhchivan exclave of Azerbaijan, between the Aras and Murat rivers. (Wikipedia)

“Then the ark rested in the seventh month, the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat.”

  • Standing on Noah's Ark, standing near the Iranian border, standing at the base of Mt Ararat and experiencing the culture has been one of my favorite trips by far! The tour guide Andrew Jones is incredible, he's very knowledgeable of this area and a kind human. I learned so much and felt such joy around the people, including Zafer Onay and his family whom I'll never forget. Definitely recommend this trip opportunity to everyone, young or old, you will truly enjoy yourself on a once in a lifetime experience of visiting the area where Noah and his family replenished the Earth.

  • The guided tour of Noah’s Ark is amazing and should be a bucket list item for any believer or truth seeker.  Andrew Jones (arguably one of the two most knowledgeable in the world on the subject) leads the tour and provides on-site historical and scientific details that no other tour can provide.  In addition to multiple days of exploring the ark site and other related areas, the tour provides many interactions with the friendly local residents and places to see how life is in eastern Turkey.  I can’t imagine how anyone could pass up an opportunity to see the ark and touch its exposed petrified deck timbers.

  • Imagine stepping foot on/aboard the REbirthplace of humanity?  This is a “once in a 5-millennium” opportunity that we got to encounter first-hand!  Andrew really knows how to make this tour an unforgettable adventure!

  • This trip went beyond our high expectations! Andrew Jones and Zafer Onay are amazing and knowledgeable tour guides.  From beautiful hotels and delicious food all inclusive, to walking the bustling streets of Dogubayazit at night, to meeting the heartwarming and personable residents of the area, we loved our time in eastern Turkey.   The Ark site is overwhelming!  If you are older or have physical problems and think you can’t go,  they make a way for everyone to get to the sites! We saw the drogue stone site, the sand dollar and sea shell areas, and the ancient area that Noah resided, ancient palaces and more!  Plus an exclusive to this trip is that we were allowed to go on up the mountain to within basically yards of the Iranian border to see where the Ark came to rest originally on the beautiful mountain ridge of Judi.  Another highlight is that Andrew Jones has permission to fly a drone on site.  Getting a drone shot of us on top of the Ark was the icing on the cake! It will exceed your expectations, too! Go and soak up the culture, the people, and the sites where civilization began!
