Description

The tour will start off from Gobustan Museum, where you will see ancient human bones, work tools used back to thousand years ago during the Mesolithic period. Later, we will proceed to the rocky area, where you will see ancient petroglyphs (stone carvings).

Later on, we will proceed to the mud volcanoes which are 20 mins away from Gobustan National Museum. During this trip you will get a great chance to see these rare and active volcanoes from very close distance.

After the lunch break, we will start heading to the ancient zoroastrian temple "Ateshgah" which is considered as an authentic Azerbaijani exotic site to visit. It is located approximately 30 km from the center of Baku in the suburb of Surakhany. You will learn a lot about the temple from your guide, particularly, more about the history of creation of such a temple in Baku and unique natural phenomenon of burning natural gas outlets.

After visiting the temple you will go directly to "Yanar Dag" ("Burning Mountain"), located not too far from Ateshgah Temple. It is the most famous and popular tourist site of the “eternal flame” in Azerbaijan.
