Gobustan & Volcano Tour

The reserve is well known with its perfectly preserved rock paintings – petroglyphs – a kind of artistic “archive” of human evolution on the Earth. “Documents” of such archives is the first human’s presentation of his/her “I” to the outside world. Gobustan reflect the history of this region for nearly 15,000 years – since the end of the era of the Upper Paleolithic till the Middle Ages. Of particular interest are the images multi-oar boats, with a light source at the stern. Today Azerbaijani scientists found, described and studied more than 4,000 petroglyphs (rock painting in the stone carving art) and this important work continues. After that you will also have a chance to visit quite a unique site where 300 of the planet’s estimated 700 mud volcanoes sit Gobustan, Azerbaijan and the Caspian Sea. Many geologists as well as locals and international mud tourists trek to such places as the Firuz Crater Gobustan Salyan mud tourists trek to such places as the Firuz Crater, Gobustan, Salyan and end up happily covered in mud which is thought to have medicinal qualities.
