Gobustan geographical region is situated in East Azerbaijan and borders on the southern slope of Big Caucasus ridge in the north, Pirsaat River in the west, Harami and Mishov mountains in the south, the Caspian Sea and Absheron peninsula in the east. The area is rich with gorges and ravines. The meaning of the word «Gobustan» is derived from two words «gobu» – «ravine» and «stan»- «place», i.e. ravine area. The word «gobu» is of Turkic origin and means «a dried up river valley». The length of this area (from north to south) is 100 km., the width is approximately 80 km. The average height of the area is 600-700 m. The biggest mud volcanoes in the Caucasus are located in Gobustan. Although Gobustan is a mountainous area, here a great number of rocky rows can be met. Semidesert areas have been developed here.
