On the way to Ararat, we stopped at Meteor Crater.
Meteor Crater is located 18 km from Mount Ararat, close (1 km) to the Iranian borders and village Gurbulak. Meteor Crater is 60 meters deep and has diamater 35 meters, but it is half-filled with soil and mud.
Mount Ararat is a snow-capped and dormant compound volcano in the eastern extremity of Turkey. It consists of two major volcanic cones: Greater Ararat, the highest peak with an elevation of 5,137 m ; and Lesser Ararat, with an elevation of 3,896 m.
Mount Ararat is associated with the “mountains of Ararat” in the Old Testament. It is the traditional resting place of Noah’s Ark according to the Book of Genesis.
Mt. Ararat is the principal national symbol of Armenia and is considered a “holy mountain” by Armenians. It is featured prominently in Armenian literature and art.
They were really gentle and kind. Probably they are Kurd. I hope they will spend the peaceful life.
