Baku: Gobustan, Volcanoes, Fire Temple and Yanardag Day Trip

Highlights

  • Visit the first industrialized oil well in the world
  • Marvel at the ancient rock drawings and petroglyphs in Gobustan
  • Watch the eruption of mud volcanoes
  • Visit the fire temple and burning mountain

Description

Following a morning pickup from your accommodation in Baku, head in direction of Gobustan. Make a stop to visit an industrialized oil well close to the Bibi-Heybat Mosque. The journey continues to the Gobustan Museum of Petroglyphs, an indoor and outdoor museum located approximately 70 kilometers from Baku. Marvel at prehistoric rock drawings and petroglyphs which were carved by primitive men on walls of caves and on rocks, reflecting the culture, economy, and world outlook of the ancient Azeri people. Then, head to the coastal area of Azerbaijan, home to 400 mud volcanoes. Stop for lunch at a local restaurant savoring delicious Azerbaijani dishes. After lunch, visit the ancient Zoroastrian Ateshgah Temple, a former holy place for fire-worshippers. Round off the day with a visit to Yanardag, a natural gas fire that blazes continuously on a hillside on the Absheron Peninsula.
