  • Date: Late May-early June.
  • Length of trip: 16 days.
  • Team size: 2-4 members.
  • Purpose: To survey Turkey’s Kurdish southeast and return to Mount Ararat to climb and continue building relationships among the semi-nomadic Kurds who spend summer months with sheep herds grazing on the 16,854-foot/5,137-meter mountain’s slopes.
  • Cost: Estimated at US$3,245 plus airfare to/from and around Turkey. The estimate includes ground transport, accommodations, food, and trekking expenses. Does not include international and internal airfare.
