mountain

Mount Ararat is a snow-capped, dormant volcanic cone . It has two peaks: Greater Ararat (the highest peak with an elevation of 5,137 m) and Lesser Ararat (with an elevation of 3,896 m).

Mount Ararat in Judeo-Christian tradition is associated with the "Mountains of Ararat" where, according to the book of Genesis, Noah's ark came to rest. It also plays a significant role in Armenian culture and irredentism.
