What to ExpectItinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Mud Volcanoes, Dasgil Hill, Qobustan 3700 Azerbaijan
About 200 eruptions have occurred in 50 volcanoes in the territory of Azerbaijani Republic since 1810. The eruption of mud volcanoes is accompanied by strong explosions and underground rumbling. Gasses come out from the deepest layers of the earth and immediately ignite. A height of a flame over the volcano reaches 1000 meters (Garasu volcano). Toragay volcano erupted 6 times from 1841 to 1950.
Mud volcanoes are associated with oilfields. Rich oil and gas fields are found in the territories of mud volcanoes (Lokbatan, Garadgh, Neft Dashlari, Mishovdagh, and others). In addition, lava, mud, and liquid erupted by mud volcanoes are used as raw materials in chemical and construction industries and also in pharmacology.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Gobustan Rock Art, Gobustan Settlement - Garadagh District 60 km South of Baku, Qobustan 1080 Azerbaijan
Just over an hour’s drive from Baku, Gobustan National Park is an otherworldly landscape of bubbling mud volcanoes, giant rocky boulders and ancient petroglyphs (rock carvings). In fact, it’s these rock carvings that in part gained the park UNESCO World Heritage status, with more than 6,000 of them dating back between 5,000 to 40,000 years. They offer a fascinating glimpse into prehistoric life and culture, with images of hunters chasing their prey and women dancing. The park is also home to the remains of settlements, burials and inhabited caves.
Duration: 2 hours
