They’re found spattered throughout the world, but astonishingly around 300 of the earth’s estimated 700 mud volcanoes are in Azerbaijan and the Caspian Sea. Capable of ejecting millions of cubic meters of hydrocarbon gasses plus mountains of mud, these geological marvels – some of them over 200 meters high – are a sight to behold. Later, we will drive to Gobustan Historical Reserve (65 km far). The reserve is well known with its perfectly preserved rock paintings - petroglyphs - a kind of artistic archive of human evolution on the Earth. They 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. Before the start of the tour around Gobustan we will visit the interactive museum with the same name, where with the help of special programs and multimedia touch screens we will get to know all about the flora of Gobustan.
