Mount Ararat (Turkish: Ağrı Dağı, Armenian: Արարատ, Greek: Αραράτ, Hebrew: אררט, Kurdish: Agirî, Persian: آرارات) is located in extreme northeast Turkey, close to the borders of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Iran. Ararat consists of two volcanic peaks: Big Ararat (5,137 m) and Little Ararat (3,914 m). No eruptions of Mt. Ararat have ever been recorded, but the mountain is likely to have erupted within the past 10,000 years. Located far from any plate boundaries, the underlying cause of volcanism at Mt. Ararat is not well understood.

Türkçe: Ağrı Dağı (Selçuklular döneminde; Eğri Dağ, resmi adıyla Büyük Ağrı Dağı), Türkiye'nin en yüksek dağıdır.
