Azerbaijan Guide, National Parks Guy

Gobustan State Reserve (or Qobustan Milli Parkı) is a recognised UNESCO World Heritage Site for it’s Rock Art Cultural Landscape. Not far from Baku, it is worth a short drive to visit. The region is also part of the mud volcanoes, some of the largest in the world, and near Baku the Yanar Dag, or Burning Mountain.

I wanted to include this State Reserve because of the unique nature of the Petroglyphs that are in the area, with a visitor center available it would be a pity not to visit.

Some of the carving date back to prehistoric times believed to be between 5000-40 000 years old, with ancient caves and settlements in the area. The climate is is very dry, hence the preservation of these carvings with very little rainfall.

Read more about the Petroglyphs from the Smithsonian Institution.
