Well, it is not worth travelling 25 km Northeast of Baku, in the Absheron Peninsula, all the way up to the Village of Mammadli, to visit "Yanar Dag", the "small" burning mountains. I felt disappointed and would rather have stayed in Baku, spending the afternoon at the awesome "Heydar Aliyev Cultural Center" or at the fabulous "Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum". But, you are in Azerbaijan, worldly known as the "Land of Fire", due to the large concentration of natural gas under the Absheron Peninsula, with flames continously burning throughout antiquity (and up to our days), that were even reported by historical travellers such as iconic Marco Polo, in the 13th century. "Yanar Dag" stages a "small" natural gas fire continously burning at the hillside of the "small" mountain, an also "small" museum and a "small"stone exhition. And that is all! All "small"! It might be much more interesting to visit it on early evenings, when the flames should be much more scenic. Please do check closing hours before going, as it is not so close or easy to reach. At your own risk. Any way, enjoy!

Worth visiting while in Azerbaijan. The mountain is naturally blazing with fire due to natural gases.there is a museum inside. Don't forget to visit it. Where your reflection appears like fire on walls. I like it the most during that visit.

Also called the fire mountain , this place has been associated with leaking reserves of natural gas beneath the layer of soil which lighten up quite easily. It has a small museum too highlighting the history of the place. They have kept artifacts from nearby areas as well to showcase the historical importance of the place.

This was the penultimate stop on a day tour we'd booked. You pay to head into an amphitheatre that surrounds a hollow where gas seeps out of the ground and has been lit so that there's a permanent flaming hillside. You can go right up close to the flames, so be careful if you've got little kids. There's also a bridge across and a viewing point on the other side of the hill - that's pretty much it. Other reviewers sounded underwhelmed - if you're not expecting much, then you should enjoy a short trip here.
