Today's excursion ends at the upland park – the spectacular place where you can enjoy an unsurpassed view of the city.

Transfer to Gobustan (60 km far from Baku) is widely known not only in Azerbaijan but also worldwide with an outstanding collection of rock engravings.

Gobustan National Historical-Artistic Preserve (UNESCO’s World Heritage) is a unique archaeological area (open-air museum) that has preserved more than 6000 petroglyphs (rock carvings), tens of ancient human sites, dwelling places, gravestones, plenty of caves and other sites dated back to different historical periods. All these monuments are evidence of 15 thousand years long successive usage of Gobustan by people.

The petroglyphs of Gobustan, which are artistic chronicles of the past, bear great importance for the study of the pre-history of humanity.

You will also have a chance to visit quite a unique place - mud volcanoes. According to the number of active mud volcanoes, Azerbaijan ranks first in the world. Many geologists as well as locals and international mud tourists trek to this place and end up happily covered in mud which is thought to have medicinal qualities. In 2001 one mud volcano 15 kilometres from Baku made world headlines when it suddenly started spewing flames 15 meters high.

explore all the outskirts and sights of the Absheron peninsula. Transfer to the temple of fire worshipers – Atashgah (30 km far from Baku).

Azerbaijan is one of the few places on the earth where even today one can observe elements of preserved fire cult and the ancient Zoroastrianism religion. For example, Atashgah is known for such a unique phenomenon as burning natural gas outlets (underground gas, coming onto a surface, contacts oxygen and lights up). The temple in its present state was constructed

in the 17th-18th centuries by the Baku-based Hindu community related to Sikhs. The pentagonal complex has an open courtyard with temple-altar in the centre which was the place of pilgrimage for worshippers.

The final destination of today’s excursion is Azerbaijani exotic Yanardag (“burning hill”). And this is real a burning hill – not metaphorically, but literally. Meter-long tongues of fire cover the stratified earth approximately 10 metres in width.
