dogubeyazit- ararat

Hi,

I was in this town last week for a climb to Ararat.

I met one of the local guides who organizes trips to Ararat mainly in winter:

www.mountararatexpeditions.com

He is a really nice guy and serious so I wanted to leave this remark about him.

Thanks

Hi, did you actually climb up Mt Ararat? What is the current situation regarding the special permit etc. because it always seems to change!

Hi,

yes, I did it with another company. I can give you the details if you want.

You need to contact them about 45 days in advance to get the permit and they offer you a 4 or 7 days package with all included.

no problem about getting the permission or situation in the area.

That's good to hear because when we were there a couple of years ago, it was "out of bounds" (not that we intended to hike / climb it - we are too long in the tooth for that sort of caper!!)

Didn't find the information on time but found out while on the trip that the Iskah Pasa Palace is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 0830-1700 and is only closed on Mondays.

I was in Van on Monday and intended to go to the palace but thank Allah didn't.

Although self promotion is not really allowed on TA, Mount Ararat a, in this case I don't really care, since very few TA tourists ever go there.

Go for it, you won't get me climbing it. Had a good view of it once from my hotel in Dogubeyazit.
