Itinerary

  • Day 1

    BAKU-GOBOUSTAN

    Gobustan National Historical-Artistic Preserve and Mud Volcanoes (5 hours)
    Breakfast at the hotel
    Transfer to Gobustan (60 km far from Baku) that is widely known not only in Azerbaijan, but also worldwide with an outstanding collection of rock engravings.
    Gobustan (UNESCO’s World Heritage) is a unique archaeological area (open-air museum) that has preserved more than 6000 petroglyphs (rock carvings), tens of ancient human sites, dwelling places, gravestones, plenty of caves and other sites dated back to different historical periods. All these monuments
    are the evidence of 15 thousand years long successive usage of Gobustan by people.
    The petroglyphs of Gobustan, that are artistic chronicles of the past, bear great importance for the study of the pre-history of humanity.
    You will also have a chance to visit quite a unique place - mud volcanoes. According to the number of active mud volcanoes, Azerbaijan ranks first in the world. Many geologists as well as locals and international mud tourists trek to this place and end up happily covered in mud which is thought to have
    medicinal qualities. In 2001 one mud volcano 15 kilometers from Baku made world headlines when it
    suddenly started spewing flames 15 meters high.
    On the way back, you will visit Bibi-Heybat Mosque that was built in 1267-1300.
