Mud Volcanoes, Qobustan

#1 of 7 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.

  • If you do get to the Gobustan Reserve, it will be unforgivable not to get to the mud volcanoes located nearby. I strongly recommend not to crash your car, and to hire a local driver on the broken "Moscow" or "Jigulinka". Oddly enough, it is these "oldies" best overcome off-road, leading to volcanoes. And another advice based on personal experience))): dress or something not light, that is well washed, or generally go with bare feet. For the wind there is strong, and volcanoes "spit" from the heart))). But all this is complete nonsense compared to the completely Martian landscape. Well, and useful mud, which can be typed in a bottle or smeared right there))).
