Ararat Treks

 

Mount Ararat is one of the easiest and nicest mountains over 5,000 meters to climb. However, you must be at least an intermediate mountain wanderer. If you remember about the basic safety principles, it is a safe mountain. Of course, you should prepare yourself first, mainly work on your fitness level. If trekking in the mountains is everyday life for you, it means you’re ready to go 😉 It is more difficult though when it comes to acclimatization – you don’t need to worry about it in lower mountains, but when you go to Ararat, you will definitely have to face it. Unfortunately, not every well-prepared hiker will have no problems staying above 3,500 meters above sea level. But you will only know this when you get there. Apart from the usual headache, you might experience vomiting, diarrhoea, breathing problems or the lack of strength to go on. It often happens that someone from the group cannot handle the height and does not climb to the summit. This, however, doesn’t mean that they won’t ever conquer Ararat – they just have to try again.

So if you want a new experience, an interesting but not very difficult challenge, come to Ararat. Apart from the fact that the plains surrounding that colossal mountain are really beautiful and really different from Polish or European landscapes, you will also have a chance to get to know Kurdish culture and its monuments. You are really welcome there! 😉

On the Ararat  trekking welcome especially from May to September, because then there are the best weather conditions. We gather the groups for each month, we set a precise deadline for the notified persons.
