What you can expect

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Gobustan Rock Art, Gobustan Settlement - Garadagh District 60 km South of Baku, Qobustan 1080 Azerbaijan

We will utilise a private car/private bus (depending on the number of people joining the tour) to reach Gobustan National Reserve. The tour will start off from Gobustan Museum where you will see ancient human bones, work tools used in back to thousand years ago during the Mesolithic period. Gobustan geographical region is situated in the west-south of Baku. The meaning of the word «Gobustan» is derived from two words «gobu» – «ravine» and «stan»- «place», i.e. ravine area. The word «gobu» is also of Turkic origin and means «a dried up river valley».

After visiting Gobustan museum, you will advance to the mountain in order to see real rock paintings in the open air museum.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Mud Volcanoes, Dasgil Hill, Qobustan 3700 Azerbaijan

Later on, the tour will proceed to the Mud Volcano which is 20 mins away from Gobustan National Museum. Azerbaijan keeps the first place in the world for the number of mud volcanoes. About 300 mud volcanoes are to be found in Azerbaijan – at the shore, in the sea and on islands. During this trip you will get a great chance to see these amazing active volcanoes from very close distance.

Important Note:

On wet seasons/rainy weather conditions, the Mud Volcanoes can be very muddy and impossible to reach by car. Therefore, in case of rainy weather/bad road conditions the trip to mud volcanoes will be substituted with a visit to Bibiheybat Mosque on the way back to the city centre.

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Sahil Park, Uzeyir Hajibeyov St In Front Of Akhundov National Library, Baku Azerbaijan

Your tour will end at Sahil Park, one of the central parks of Baku. We can also drop you off at your accommodation, if you prefer so.
