According to the biblical tradition, Ararat is considered the cradle of mankind. In the 13th century the great explorer Marco Polo described Mount Ararat as an inaccessible mountain with ever-increasing snow-capped peaks. The first documented ascent to the Great Ararat is dated 27 September 1829, when Johann Jacob von Parrot, a 37-year-old German professor, reached the peak on his third attempt. A little later, in 1876, one of his followers, the English scientist and statesman James Bryce, looking at the Ararat Valley from the top of the mountain would say: “If in fact this is where man first set foot on land, you couldn’t imagine a more impressive center of the universe.”
