                    Important Warnings!

                    Mount Ararat has areas prone to avalanches. That’s why it’s important to avoid any mistakes that may cause an avalanche and maintain constant communication with your guide. You should especially have a good choice of gloves and boots. Remember, Mount Ararat is a mountain that has a large ice mass that doesn’t melt throughout the year and affected by cold because of its equatorial position.
                    Only the guide decides on the changes to be made on the tour and this cannot be discussed. During the mountain tour, you cannot leave the group and go off on your own, as this is very risky and we do not accept responsibility for you if you do this. If you leave the Group for any reason after the tour has started, you are not entitled to a refund. Please note that if you need to descend from the mountain to the city for any reason other than health problems, a carrier horse, a guide and a vehicle will be sent to the mountain just for you, and you will have to pay extra for these.

                    Cancellation and Refund

                    Cancellations made at least 30 days before the start of the tour will grant you a 80% refund. No refund will be made for cancellations made less than 30 days before the tour starts. However, you can change the canceled Tour to another date within the climbing season.
