Panorama of the Ararat plain as seen from Dzorap, Armenia.

The Ararat plain (Armenian: Արարատյան դաշտավայր) is one of the largest of the Armenian Plateau, stretches west of the Sevan basin, at the foothills of the Gegham mountains. In the north the plain borders on Mount Aragats, and in the south, on Mount Ararat. The Arax River divides it into two: the northern part lies in Armenia, the southern part lies in Turkey.

The Ararat plain and the Sevan basin experience abundant sunshine - about 2,700 hours a year. Alexandria in Egypt does not have many more; the shortest duration of sunshine is in mid-mountain areas of the forest zone (about 2,000 hours). In the foothills, there is hardly a sunless day between June and October.
