Mount Ararat in Yerevan, Armenia looks like heaven on earth in the photo above. This snow-capped dormant volcano has two primary volcanic cones. The first one is the Greater Ararat, which is Turkey’s tallest summit at 5,137 meters or 16,854 feet. The second is called the Lesser Ararat, which soars only up to 3,896 meters or 12,782 feet. The volcano’s massive measures 40 kilometers or 25 miles in diameter.
According to the book of Genesis in the bible, this is the mountain where Noah’s Ark docked, which is why it plays a crucial role in the country’s nationalism and culture.
