Iran in Photos: Mud Volcano of Chabahar

Mud Volcano of Chabahar

Sounds similar to gunshots can be frequently heard when such volcanoes are active. The mud volcano in Chabahar is 20 m in height.

In the northwest of Chabahar, 20 km away from Kahir Village, in a vast plain there is a mud volcano.

Mud volcanoes are remarkable geo-tourist attractions. There are only a handful of these volcanoes – formations created by geo-exuded slurries and gases – across the world. Sounds similar to gunshots can be frequently heard when such volcanoes are active.

The volcano in Chabahar is 20 m in height and its crater is 12 m in diameter. Over the several years of activity, the flow of mud has formed a hill around the volcano where no plant can grow.
