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 is interesting but about 45 mins from Central Baku and it is poorly presented Lots of building work in surrounding areas and maybe it will get improved

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 !

We asked the taxi to take us to the fire temple, instead he took us to Yanar Dag. Not worth it, it is a rock on fire, but actually the fire is artificial nowadays. However, the trip to there was winding through oil fields and lakes and that was quite nice to see.

It's an interesting phenomenon, but still a bit of a letdown. Yes, it's cool to see the burning flames coming out of the rocks, but that is literally all there is to see here. And it's not a giant fire pit like the "Gate to Hell" in Turkmenistan - it's about 30 feet of flames burning near the ground. Maybe... More
