Join A Group To Climb Mount Ararat Climbing Services:

  • Private Camp Area

Since camp will be a private area, there will be guards securing the camp. This way the equipment you leave behind will be safe and the tents will be under surveillance in case of bad weather conditions. We are staying at a special camp on the south route of Mount Ararat. In this camp, we have our camping tents and kitchen.

  • Cook preparing your hot food and drinks

During the climb, our firm will keep a cook on the mountain ready, responsible for preparing your hot food and drinks. On climbing days, our cook will provide your rations every morning and the climb nights for your consumption during hikes. We request our vegetarian and vegan visitors to inform us in advance about their choices.

  • Equipment kept

The equipment you won’t need during the climb will be kept by our hotel to be handed back to you after your return. Equipment you’ll be bringing to the mountain will be transferred between the camps by carrier mules and you won’t be charged any extra fees for all these services.

 

We look forward to meeting you! Please do contact us if you have any questions.
