YEREVAN — A marriage proposal was made on top of Mount Ararat (5165 meters) on August 5th by Aaron Cummings, a member of a group climbing Mount Ararat, to his Armenian girlfriend Berdjuhi Kazhoian.
“Every step of climbing Ararat was very exciting, especially on the top, where the lack of oxygen made extra difficulties. Reaching the top we all hugged and were very excited. My friend gave his phone to my girlfriend and asked to make photos. At that moment my friend started to say a stirring speech but I no longer heard the words. Then he kneeled on top of Ararat and proposed to me”, Kazhoian said in an iterview.
Kazhoian, the happy recipient of the proposal, posted about it on social network. She said “yes” to a life journey full of love and adventures with her future spouse.
Women rights defender Berdjuhi added that like any Armenian she dreamed of climbing to the top of Ararat. The couple started trainings since March of the current year climbing different mountains.
Finally, on August 2 they started climbing Ararat and reached the top on August 5.
