Mud Volcanoes, Qobustan

(95+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
Watch mud bubbling out of the earth at Mud Volcanoes, strange geological formations bursting warm liquid set against a backdrop of mountains in Gobustan National Park. Fizzy, snorting bubbles and an occasional sound of snoring make a mesmerizing spectacle. The gurgling mud coming out at 1.2 m (4 ft) high spurts like mini volcanoes but is not hot; you can touch it or bring it home for skin treatment. The landscape here features cracked mud and several piles of hardened mud spewing muddy water. It can be difficult to find, as there are no signs marking the volcanoes. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Mud Volcanoes and many more Qobustan attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Qobustan trip builder.
