Azerbaijan’s iconic "Burning mountain"-Yanardag is located north of Baku city, around 23km from the Old Town. The main attraction of Yanardag is a spectacular hill with a constantly burning wall of flames. Thanks to tectonic shifts and volcanic material below the earth’s surface, natural gas leaks from the rocks. The Italian trader and traveler Marco Polo even mentioned the flames during his travels to Baku and its surroundings, but most probably the fire has been burning for over more years at Yanardag. The fire line surrounding the foot of the summit will give you an impression of the Land of Lights and leave an unforgettable memory of the tour.To protect Yanardagh and attract tourists here, this area was declared a historical, cultural and natural reserve in 2007.
