 The 2001 Ararat Peace Climb

Ararat from the North

Update from 8/1/2001: Dear Friends,

As you know we all got back safe and sound from Ararat with a rare experience in a remote - hard to reach, mystic place on earth. During the last ten days, we've shared beautiful days in the Eastern Turkey, had an exciting and nice climb and life time remembering moments and real - pure friendship that got together for a good cause. I am very happy to be a part of this unique expedition. When George Martin [EverestNews.com] first had the idea of Everest summiteers together on Ararat, I loved it at the first instant and believed that this is going to be a life time memory for all those who will take part.

In this first Everest Summiteers ascent, we were 7 climbers from 4 different continents. I believe in the future we can do it in different regions for different charities. The Colombian friends already had this invitation. The idea is; while realizing a life time dream, do something for others, those who are in need, those who are not as lucky as we are. We climbers, we do what we can do best; we climb. By climbing, we want to get the attention of you; the individuals who has a great sense of responsibility for the poor, for the unlucky and for the other ones. 

Together we started something, I guess it is a good thing. If we climbers can get together in peace and harmony for others, why not spread it all around the world.

For organizing the Turkey part of this climb, as AKUT team, we are all very proud and happy to host our climber friends in our beautiful country. We hope they enjoyed every moment of it. If we've had any mistakes or missed anything, we believe that our friends will forgive us for our humble amateurness, but that's what we are. We are a search and rescue team and specialized on almost any sort of rescue operations. With this regard, I'd like to thank once again to my teammates in AKUT, Turkish Army and local authorities for being a part of this climb and organize communications, logistics, safety, permit and every other bit. 

Thank you for all those who follow us. Next time, let's make it bigger; together...
