Day 5 - Mount Kackar - Summit Day (3937 m)

Today we will ascend Kachkar summit (3917m) - this takes around 5-6 hrs and involves some walking on snow but very little actual climbing. After breakfast, we have an early start departing for the Mount Kackar Summit. An easy but demanding ascent over rock and scree without any technical difficulties. The view from the summit above the clouds is simply stunning with views over the whole Kackar range, and beyond to the Caucaus. On a clear day, you may have chance to see the legendary Mount Ararat. After a short break on the summit, return to our Dilberduzu campsite. If you do not wish to participate in the summit ascent, there are many day trips that you can do instead. There are many stunning lakes in the area for swimming opportunities. Overnight camp at Dilberduzu.
