Kenny Belaey who traveled half of the world riding his bike in the most beautiful and challenging locations around the globe, went to Azerbaijan to conquer the rocks of Gobustan, unique for their ancient petroglyphs and charming atmosphere. In the story, Kenny is dreaming about how he tries on the character of the caveman living there and doing the engravings on the rocks. He also dreams of riding the rocks of Gobustan.
“A week riding rocks of Gobustan has been quite hectic. We got permission to ride around this ancient area and it was very inspiring. Despite we were not allowed to ride on all of the rocks, because ancient carvings are preserved by the Government, it was an amazing experience. Bath in one of the acting mud volcanoes and the possibility to meet some of the very dangerous snakes, spiced it up even more” – Kenny Belaey.
Gobustan is a national park in Azerbaijan, 30 minutes away from Baku. It is a hill and mountain area with lots of very unique engravings on the rocks, dating back between 5.000 to 40.000 years. Gobustan was declared UNESCO World Heritage site in 2007.
