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.

Мы брали машину в аренду и сами по навигатору ездили в Гобустан. В заповедник с наскальными рисунками навигатор нас довел вполне нормально, там нам предложили сопровождающего за 20 манат, который пока... more »We took the car rent and Navigator went in Gobustan. In reserve with petroglyphs Navigator brought us quite well, there we were offered by the package maintainer for 20 manat, who will show the way to mud volcanoes. We refused, then a guard advised us to go for a taxi, which just went out to mud volcanoes. We have done so. If we had not caught my taxi is, I think, we did not have arrived, the road is bad, goes through the field, forks, dodges, benchmarks, in addition to garbage, no no, in the end, even ahead of running a taxi a bit zabludilos'. So you'd better not go there yourself and take a taxi or escort. Volcanoes themselves impress with their unusual views, dirt in them cold and slightly brackish, like, even therapeutic. Almost all attractions, where we were, the locals offer their services guide for a small fee, 5-10 manat.View original
