"Your Corner" is exactly what you think it is - your stories, pictures, art, and pretty much everything else you can share with the rest.
As part of "Your Corner" project, one of our readers, Ahsan Irshad kindly agreed to share his interesting footage with us. Irshad is a pakistani citizen, who currently lives and works in Baku. And as far as the footage goes, its a video of Azerbaijani mud volcanoes, which Irshad shot himself.

According to A. Irshad: "Mud Volcanoes are located around 60 KMs from Baku the Capital of Azerbaijan. For last three kms of journey, you have to go through a rough terrain but its worth it. The place also provides a great view of Caspian."

Azerbaijan keeps the first place in the world for the number of mud volcanoes. There are 800 mud volcanoes on the Earth and 400 of them are in the Southern Caspian region. About 300 mud volcanoes are to be found in Azerbaijan – at the shore, in the sea and on islands. There are all types of mud volcanoes – both active and dormant. Volcanoes can be high and low, gryphons and buried ones, submarine and subterranean. Each of them has its own character and chemical composition. As the most of remarkable sites of Azerbaijan the 23 of the most interesting volcanoes got the status of a national park and are protected by the state.

On our part, we would like to say, that our reader is right  - its a place, someone who has never been there, should definately go. It is worth it.
