I really enjoyed it. It is beautiful and something of a natural wonder. If you can go during twilight or early evening or maybe even see sunrise in order to enjoy the light (during daytime some of the gas flames may be hard to see…. And don’t try to feel :- ). It is a bit tricky to get there... More

I loved it. Nobody there except me. It is impressive and a really hot fire. No museum, no information provided, just the fire there to amaze you. Accept 2 Manat entry fee. The fence ends 200 meters from the gate, in case you arrive off the opening hours. From Metro Koroglu take bus 217 until final stop, for 30 qepik.... More

This attraction is 45 minutes outside Baku but is worth a visit if you have done the other major attractions in Baku. We went in the afternoon but I guess it is better at night. Get a taxi or driver as it is difficult to find.

It's just few flames. It's not even a meter high. Don't bother to go if you re even passing by. Surrounding is trash. And road is not really good considering the place is far away from baki.

It takes about an hour to get here and all you see is a couple of metres of flame at the bottom of a hill. There are better ways to spend your time.

This could be so much more interesting. The flaming mountain side is amazing but the building in front is a wreck and there is no information or facilities to accompany such a great natural phenomenon.

We went to enjoy the burning hill and Cay and set off to arrive at sunset circa 8.30 pm. At the gate the security guard told us bluntly it is only open 7am until 7pm. This is no use in the summer months! A wasted trip. We have since been told the Cay would cost 30 Manats !
