  • What to Expect

    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Qobustan, Qobustan, Daghlig Shirvan Region

    In the interactive museum of Gobustan, you will follow the stages of human development - from the Stone Age to the present. I will talk about archaeological finds, about the flora and fauna of these places, about ancient cities, the first written language and much more.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Gobustan Rock Art, Gobustan Settlement - Garadagh District 60 km South of Baku, Qobustan 1080 Azerbaijan

    On the road dotted with boulders of bizarre shape, we will go to the rocks. You will examine the numerous petroglyphs and feel like real archaeologists - what if you will be able to decipher the message of ancient artists?
    You will hear music by the mysterious stone Gavaldash, visit the caves where people settled in the Stone Age, and you will find traces of bonfires that were kindled 30 thousand years ago. Unlike the French cave of Lascaux, where tourists are not allowed to enter, here you can touch the ancient petroglyphs.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Mud Volcanoes, Dasgil Hill, Qobustan 3700 Azerbaijan

    If the weather is fine, we will go to the mud volcanoes. Driving off-road, you will find yourself among alien landscapes: cracked earth and seething hills, on the slopes of which, creating a unique relief, a thick mass of mud stream — breccia — spreads. If you want, you can feel the healing properties of mud.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Bibi-Heybat Mosque, Baku Azerbaijan

    On the way back we will visit the Bibi Heybat mosque - an extraordinary beauty! Here are the four descendants of the Prophet Muhammad, and miracles are also fulfilled, and people find healing in their souls and bodies.

    Duration: 30 minutes
