Climbing Mount AraratHello, I am hoping to climb Ararat at the end of July/beginning of August 2012 and wanted to know:
if anyone was interested in climbing around the same time and if anyone had any experience with the mountain. I am looking at tour groups but also thinking of doing it on my own. All feedback welcome! thanks

3hi, i am from turkey, never climbed to Ararat however i know that you will need a licence. You can contact this site, they are making climbing activities to there, if you join their activity, they will solve your licence problem (http://www.bukla.com/gp-tour/agri-dagi-zirvesi).
I do NOT recommend you climbing alone to that mountain. Traveling in that region alone may be insecure.
Also i will climb to the peak of Kavrun Mountain (Kackar Mountains) this summer with my friend. Its height is about 4.000 meters but is preferable to Ararat, surrounded with rain forests and very interesting culture. Keep in mind and contact me if you want to join.
