There are many legends about Ararat, it was not once described in the Bible as the place of the first altar erected after the Flood. Climbing Ararat is an opportunity to climb 5000 without any mountain climbing experience and a great chance to get acquainted with the most ancient cultural traditions of Turkey as part of our team.

The mountain is special, because here everyone finds what he was looking for and receives answers to his questions, and even more. It is not complicated from the point of view of technology. And we will be there with you, which means everything will work out. And everything that depends on a person will come true!

We, Cuma Saltik and Adem Saltik are guides of the holy Mount Ararat, madly in love with their country and their land Agri Dagi. Together with family and friends, we created a powerful company of strong-minded people, a company called AraratSaltik.
And for many years we have been helping you discover a new peak - Ararat (Turkish Agri Dagi), to feel the beauty and power of the sacred mountain. Each time we give a little of our soul!

Our native language is Turkish, but we are fluent in English, we know a little Russian. We have wonderful partner friends who know Ukrainian and Russian, and are always ready to be the second guides in our groups when necessary.

For over 23 years we have been meeting guests from different places and countries. Experience tells us that we will definitely understand each other and will remain good friends!

Hello to all my friends, I want to recommend Ararat Saltik, a great team, Adem Saltik is one of the best guides, leads calmly, sees everyone's condition, keeps a fun atmosphere in the team! Climbing brings pleasure all the way!!!
Good luck Adem!!!
Excellent climbing organization. Good team, and especially the Cuma guide.
Although we did not get to the top due to bad weather (more than a meter of snow fell during the day), but Juma did everything possible for this. He even offered to wait a couple of days at 4000m.n.m. In general, we will try next year. See you in beloved Turkey
