3-5 October – Mt Ararat, Turkey

The drive past Mt Ararat (5137m) is very scenic. The Ararat is the highest mountain in Turkey, and is snow-capped year round.

We have now arrived in the town of Dogubayazit where we are making our last preparations before leaving Turkey and entering into Iran. We are camping close to the Ishak Pasa Palace which sits beautifully on a hilltop.

We have really enjoyed our four weeks in Turkey. There is so much to see that you could easily spend three months or more only touring Turkey. But now it is time for us to see what Iran is like. We are very curious!
