Mud Volcano


Mud Volcanoes and Shur Mountains

The phenomena of mud volcanoes only occur in a few places in the world; in Balochistan Coastal zone and Uzbekistan. The three mud volcanoes of Chandargup and other mud volcanoes can be visited. The Shur Mud vent on top of the Shur Mountain will be made accessible from the Nani Mandar side. This mud vent is now silent and gave a kilometres high flame from escaping gas in 1945 when the large earthquake (8. 2 on Richter scale) took place with epicentre in the sea near Gwadar. On top of the Shur clay mountain ridge, one can see the Central Hingol Flood plains, the

Pachhri Valley, and several other attractive parts of the Park.
