The effort was abandoned in one day when the equipment was burned. It is anticipated that in 2012 <a href="http://www.mountararattrek.com" target="_blank"><i>Murat Camping</i></a>, owned by brothers Murat ^ahin and Sayim ^ahin, will be successful in building the dormatory buildings and toilets for climbers on Mount Ararat. As of 2011, there were no buildings or toilets on Mount Ararat which is a military controlled zone. In 2011, Turkey declared Mount Ararat a national park. In Turkish its correct name is <i>Ar1 Da1 Milli Park1</i>. It is now the largest national park in Turkey.
