Along the eastern borders of Turkey, Ağrı is one of the principal cities of this region. Set on a 1650m-high plateau, Agri takes its name from Turkey’s highest mountain and one of its most challenging peaks.

According to the legend of the Great Flood, Noah’s Ark ran aground on Mt Ağrı and when the flood waters finally receded Noah and his family descended from the mountain towards the fertile Iğdır Plain. Capped with snow all year round, climbing this mountain is most enjoyable from July to September.
