The Ararat climbing program allows you not only touch the piece of Biblical history and the original source of our civilization, but also to do quite interesting mountaineering ascention, which technically is not difficult, but it requires quite good physical form.

Mountain climbing in Turkey - in search of Noah's Ark

Mountaineering in Turkey - this is purely local and very specific phenomenon, geographically limited by the area of Mount Ararat. In this region there is a number of mountaineering routes, most of which lead to the top of Mount Ararat, which attracts tourists from all over the world with its unique history, coupled with the biblical events and with the entire history of the modern civilization. Ararat is located in remote and rather poorly developed province of Turkey, which complicates any mountain climbing event with quite difficult logistics, as its organization requires close collaboration with local informal communities, and without this cooperation, climbing Mount Ararat, unfortunately, can be somehow difficult.

Mountain climbing in Turkey, climbing Ararat

Another, much less popular for climbing is Small Ararat, aka Masis - the climbing routes to this Mountain, as well as on the Big Ararat (Sis) are not technically difficult, but because of its low popularity and lack of infrastructure - even less accessible. The conclusion - mountain climbing in Turkey - that is very interesting, exotic and adventurous kind of mountain activity.

Since 2014, MCS AlexClimb School of Mountaineering together with Bezengi Guides organizes mountain climbing programs in Turkey - climbing Big Ararat and Small Ararat.

These programs we operate via Georgia and via Russia as well, with 4x4 transfer right to the foot of Mount Ararat - at the moment this option is the most logistically efficient, safe, fast and budget of all the ways to get in the district of Mount Ararat. In addition we have established contacts with trusted local tour operators to provide fast, reliable and quickly organization of various climbing programs of climbing different routes of Big Ararat and Small Ararat. The Ararat climbimng program via Georgia and (or) Russia can easily be combined with any mountaineering programs in Russia and Georgia, the most popular of which are climbing program on Elbrus and Kazbek, which can be combined with climbing Mount Ararat in one mountaineering program - 12-14 days!

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
