Yanar Dag

Situated in the Absheron Peninsula, 25km north of the capital Baku, Yanar Dag features vast natural gas and oil deposits that allow its flames to continue burning. A trip here will reward you with views of rolling green pastures overlooking Baku to the south, and beautiful beaches to the north. 

Fun fact

A nighttime visit here will have you mesmerised by the flames’ warmth and sounds.
