Mud Volcanoes, Gobustan

#2 of 9 in Things to do in Daghlig Shirvan Region
Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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. There's more than 400 mud volcanoes in Azerbaijan, home to the world's greatest concentration of mud volcanoes. 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 to the touch. The landscape features cracked mud and piles of hardened mud spewing muddy water. Mud Volcanoes is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.
