”…and the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.”

The Old Testament, Genesis 8:4

Hmm… Should we consider that even Mount Everest was covered during the Noah’s Flood and Mount Ararat is higher than Mount Everest? Of course, No! Remember, the pre-Flood Earth is perished forever and the earth of today has a different topography. Mount Ararat is 5,137 meters high above sea level and is several kilometers lower than Mount Everest, the top of which is 8,848 meters above sea level.

Well, here are some breathtaking views of Mount Ararat that might inspire you to climb up the Biblical Mount or to take the road less traveled to see Ararat from different spots in Armenia.
