Metin ÇEVEN ( Ararat's Guide )
I was born on 10/09/1985 in Topçatan Village at the foot of Mount Ararat in Doğubayazıt.
I lived in Topçatan Village until I was 10. Mountaineering is my father's profession, and I've grown up in love with mountaineering job, the father's profession, and Mount Ararat, which I have always seen. When I was a kid, I always wanted to go to the mountains with my father. But I had to wait till I was 16. When I was 16, I went to the summit of Mount Ararat for the first time with my father HALİS ÇEVEN.
It was an incredible feeling. After my first summit on Mount Ararat, I liked this profession more. I had seen the summit of Mount Ararat, which most people thought no one would be able to climb to the summit, when I was a child, and I chose my profession. I would be a good mountaineer like my father, and my elder brother MEHMET ÇEVEN who practiced this profession for years with my father. I started to imagine countless summits to the summit of Mount Ararat and I started to realize this dream with the tours that my elder brother organized. I have been at the peaks of the mountains many times, but I do not know the exact number. Then I started going to other mountains. In Turkey; I climbed to the top of Mount Nemrut, Mount Süphan and Kaçkar Mountains. I added the summit of Demavant Mountain in İran, which has a height of 5671 mt, to my experience. Yeah, I'm in love with my profession. I have loved and done this profession for many years as an amateur. In 2009, I got my first mountaineering certificate from the Provincial Sports Directorate and continued doing this profession professionally. Then, in 2012, I have successfully received my Mount Ararat field guidance document.
The date is 2019 and yes, I am here to improve this wonderful profession that I have done for years by learning from my family.
I'm waiting for everyone that in love with the mountains.
How about an Mount Ararat adventure with me?

NOTE: Success is to do a job fondly ...
