Mud Volcanoes, Qobustan

2.8
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Daghlig Shirvan Region
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. Mud Volcanoes is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Qobustan Edition.

  • You need to take the SUV at a rental company, we managed to arrange for just 100 manat per day. Search for instagram, they give a discount. On the application in phone cards be clearly offline before the Gobustan mud volcanoes, a little further away than sight rotation with rock paintings, which can be viewed on the way back (ibid. drink tea with herbs). Four to go further along the road from turning much more comfortable and it allows you to ride a little bit other way than you take taxi drivers (which TURN a LOT). We went and enjoyed the scenery. At the top of the mountain a lot of dirt, and relatively low volcanoes in the crater that gurgles dirt in complete silence, nice to hear) I would say one of the most interesting places, which are relatively close to Baku highway. You want to see!

  • Decided we friends independently reach mud volcanoes. First you need to get to the subway on May 28, from there take the bus for 0.25 AZN, which brings you to the Bazaar (aka Stampede). Go about 30-45 minutes. Next you take the bus that goes to Gobustan, go about 40 minutes. This bus is far not the same people you see in Baku, then dirty and very poor people. At the stop "Gobustan" you will find very cute taxi driver, who will offer you an excursion to mud volcanoes. We agreed to go with him, the amount of travel he did not reveal. At the very end of the trip, it turned out that the cost of this "excursions" a taxi driver-200 manats, the raining down every threat. Eventually traded and gave up the last 150 AZN. So for quiet excursions I advise to go to a travel agency, without independent travel. Comrade at zhiguli submitted the name "Murat", 28 years. I enclose a photo machine rooms of this man if you see it-run to go to hell, don't settle for his proposals obderet hush.
