Together, the Ararat Mountains straddle the borders of what are present-day Turkey, Armenia, Iran, and Azerbaijan. Mt. Ararat (“Greater Ararat”) rises to a height of 5,137 m (16,854 ft). Mt. Ararat’s neighboring mountain, Little Ararat (“Ararat the Lesser”), on the left of this photograph, rises upwards to 3,925 m (12,877 ft). This photograph was taken just outside of Yerevan, Armenia.
