The place is nice and attractive But unfortunately there is nothing but fire There is no restaurant or coffee shop near it. The weather was too cold and ground covered with ice and it was wet and sloppy

I visited Baku on one of the rare occasions it decided to snow for the weekend!! However Yanar Dag was still burning despite that! I must admit I expected the whole mountain to be on fire but despite the fact it wasn't I still found this phenomenon quite impressive and was glad I'd seen it!!

It's just a little fire coming out of rocks. You can also walk the stairs up the hill to see the village, and that's it! I went there today and it's honestly not worth the visit or the money spent on transportation.

We were definetely expecting something more impressive. Just a small fire. And there is no written information around to explain about yanar dag.

i'm against some rude comments, in fact the fire it's just in small area (like 2 meters) but it means a lot for me as a visitor of Azerbaijan, I knew that Azerbaijan is the land of fire, and one of the reasons of going to Azerbaijan is to visit this place, the fire is something unique. A translator was... More

There is nothing interesting on the place except of gas flare coming out of the rock. Of course it should be more interesting if you hire guide. I recommend you to go to Ateshgah first because it is more tourist attractive and at least you'll get more information why Azerbaijan is "Land of Fire", after that as a prove of... More

I have never seen anything like this, it was fascinating to watch. Our guide threw water on the fire and it went out briefly and the rock went bright red! It reignited virtually instantly and produced black soot. It is definitely worth a visit as it helps you understand the whole fire concept in Azerbaijan and why the olden day... More

We visited after being told about it. It was a windy evening so we couldn't stay long. The fire did look a bit different to your average garden bonfire! There's a little souvenir shop. The drive there was interesting seeing the oil fields & pumps in operation.

Yanar Dag translated as "Fire Mountain", is an ancient and visually stunning fire which blazes continuously on a hillside. The flames shoot into the air as long as 10 feet, on the 30-foot wide ridge of a limestone hillside that has been continuously on fire for more than one thousand years. The natural gas vents ensure that hot flames roar... More
