Qobustan it is an ancient place of habitants which live in these areas on the dates of 5,000-40,000 years ago. It is located about about 60 km far from Baku city center. This location included to the UNESCO Heritage list.
Qobustan National Museum will help you to feel the history of first immigrants of these lands. The reserve has more than 6,000 rock engravings dating back between 5,000-40,000 years. The site also features the remains of inhabited caves, settlements and burials, all reflecting an intensive human use by the inhabitants of the area during the wet period that followed the last Ice Age.
Azerbaijan also famous with its Mud Vulcanos which is very rear in the world. We will have a chance to see these Vulcanos which are near to Qobustan Museum. As the road to Mud Vulcano is so bad, we will change our car to Soviet cars with brand name Lada. It will be another Safari adventure for you. ;)
Is one of Azerbaijan’s most remarkable sight. According to historical sources, before the construction of the Indian Temple Of Fire in Surakhani at the end of the 17th, the local people also worshiped at this site because of the “seven holes with burning flame”.
Yanar Dag is a natural gas fire which blazes continuously on a hillside on the Absheron Peninsula on the Caspian Sea near Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan (a country which itself is known as "the Land of Fire"). Flames jet into the air 3 metres (9.8 ft) from a thin, porous sandstone layer.

Saw a beautiful side of Azerbaijan
Besides the shiny glitz and glam of Baku, and the other older side (not the old city) but the older suburban areas of Baku this trip feels like an escape from the concrete jungle we all live in today. Our really appreciated our tour guide today, he was genuine and nice. The only thing I got irritated about was the fact that our other driver, who took us to the mud volcanoes, asked us to pay 10 manat because he offered us to put the volcanic mud in a bottle for us to take. I should've guessed this was coming as anywhere in Baku, if anything is offered, trust that it will be charged.
Besides that we had an amazing day at Gobustan, I loved the museum, it is worth going there as it reveals a lot about the culture and history of petroglyphs. Also, the atesgah and the guide there was amazing. We stopped for some amazing buffet for just 10 manat, before the ateshgah and it was yummy azerbaijani food. I am vegan and yet I could find many options. Yanar dag was another beautiful experience, never seen anything like that. It was a good tour, good driver, very polite, comfortable drive and car. I recommend this tour.
Professional Tour Company
Used this company for transfers from Baku airport to the city and also for a day tour to Qobustan, Ateshgah and Yanardag. Farhad who took me on the day trip was a friendly guide and driver. His driving was excellent and he was a nice guy to spend the day with. The company was easy to deal with after booking via Viator and provided a quality service.
