Mud Volcanoes, Qobustan

4.8
#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.

    Mud Springs, over time, has made some mounds. Sprang are still muddy from the summit crater of the watch, surprisingly would never get bored. Even though mud mud isn't so hot. Great pond in the heart of the mountain. It is recommended to visit with local taxi drivers or tour, because it is very hard to find. There are oil seep into the ground on the way to the mud volcano is in the pond.

    The visit is a good idea to order a customised vehicle since the road is in very bad shape. The place itself is worth watching. You don't have to be afraid of alone because the mud is cold. Some visitors get it natieraju on the cell body.
