Mount Ararat

Mount Ararat is found in south-east Turkey and is the countries tallest mountain standing at 5137 metres nearly 17,000 feet. While massive in size the stories and legends that surround the natural wonder are just as unique.

Stories from the bible say that this mountain was the final landing destination for Noah’s ark. After The Flood ended and the waters receded the description of the landscape and their travels state this would be where they would have landed. While a group of evangelic Christian explorers found what they called Noah’s Ark high in the mountains further research has only added more questions, while there is ancient wood in building/boat shapes it has not been proven to be The Ark.
