Little Ararat, also known as Mount Sis or Lesser Ararat (Armenian: Սիս, romanized: Sis or Փոքր Արարատ, Pok'r Ararat; Kurdish: Agiriyê Biçûk; Turkish and Azerbaijani: Küçük Ağrı), is the sixth tallest peak in Turkey. It is a large satellite cone located on the eastern flank of the massive Mount Ararat, less than 5 mi (8.0 km) west of Turkey's border with Iran. Despite being dwarfed by its higher and far more famous neighbor, Little Ararat is a significant volcano in its own right, with an almost perfectly symmetrical, conical form and smooth constructional slopes. Little Ararat rises about 1,296 m (4,252 ft) above the Serdarbulak lava plateau, which forms a saddle connecting it with the main peak.
On 8 November [O.S. 27 October] 1829, Baltic German explorer Friedrich Parrot and Armenian writer Khachatur Abovian climbed Little Ararat. Its peak and eastern flank were on the Iranian side of the border until the early 1930s.
During the Kurdish Ararat rebellion, Kurdish rebels used the area "as a haven against the state in their uprising." Turkey crossed the border and militarily occupied the region, which Iran eventually agreed to cede to Ankara in a territorial exchange.
