Getting there & away
Taxis from Baku ask for at least AZN40 return to see all the sites. Beware that they might not know the mud volcano site. Alternatively, take Әlət-bound bus 105 (80q, one hour) from opposite Baku’s İdman Sarayı. Get off before the overpass bridge at the south end of Qobustan town. From here the petroglyphs site is 5km, signposted by a mock rock carving. Savvy local taxi drivers ask a steep AZN10 return to see the petroglyphs reserve and Roman graffiti site, or AZN20 including the mud volcanoes.
