Information about the Ararat Mountain:
Mount Ararat (Turkish: Ağrı Dağı; see below for details on its other names) is a snow-capped, dormant volcanic cone in Turkey. It has two peaks: Greater Ararat (the tallest peak in Turkey, and the entire Armenian plateau with an elevation of 5,137 m (16,854 ft)) and Lesser Ararat (with an elevation of 3,896 m (12,782 ft)).
Mount Ararat is located in the Iğdır Province,
the easternmost province of Turkey's Eastern Anatolia Region. Its
summit is located some 16 km (10 mi) west of the Iranian and 32 km
(20 mi) south of the Armenian border. The Nakhchivan exclave of Azerbaijan is also in close proximity to the mountain. The Ararat plain runs along its northwest to western side.
Mount Ararat in Judeo-Christian tradition is associated with the "Mountains of Ararat" where according to the book of Genesis, Noah's ark came to rest. It also plays a significant role in Armenian nationalism and irredentism.
