I guess they carried up Lava Flows along with the Wood to create one of a kind elaborate Hoax OR They planted the Wood in a fashion to look like Lava is flowing over it.
Mount Ararat was most notably Volcanically active around 3000 b.c. and a few times since. You will notice the lava flow covering the wooden beams in some places and actually ending the beams as they seem burnt through in attached picture (left center). Hard to plant something like this. Either this is Noah's Ark or an old man-made structure (ref. 1840 volcanic activity) that has been exposed to volcanic activity.
Mount Ararat is known as a StratoVolcano. This Lava tends to be Glassy like. Giving it a shimmer. In addition ice is covering the lava adds to the shimmer. It's a naturally occuring Glass called Obsidian which is found in Felsic Lava flow and is caused when this lava cools very quickly (like in a VERY cold enviroment on top at 13k Feet on Mount Ararat). Click Here for StratoVolcano Wiki The lava that flows from stratovolcanoes tends to be viscous; it cools and hardens before spreading far. The magma forming this lava is often felsic, having high-to-intermediate levels of silica (as in rhyolite, dacite, or andesite), with lesser amounts of less-viscous mafic magma. Picture of Obsidian Lava almost identical to the Chinese explorer picture I posted above.
Above is additional Information....YOU DECIDE!

"You will notice the lava flow covering the wooden beams"
What I see is a picture of a few beams surrounded by some stone, which might be igneous or sedimentary rock. I have NO WAY of knowing where this picture was taken, when those beams were placed there or for what reason, and neither do you.
Why you would displace common sense and elementary principles to blindly believe some internet story, is a mystery.
