Yanar Dag Tours and Activities

Free admission

If you want to know why Azerbaijan is called the Land of Fire, take a trip to Yanar Dag. While many of the nation’s natural gas flames were extinguished due to extensive drilling into the natural gas reserves in the early twentieth century, the fire at Yanar Dag (also called Fire Mountain) still burns, making it one of the country’s most interesting attractions.

According to local legend, a shepherd smoking a cigarette accidentally ignited this natural gas vent in 1958, creating a 33 foot (10-meter) wall of fire licking its way up a small hillside. Enterprising Azerbaijanis have opened a teahouse nearby, where visitors can stare into the flames over a warm drink.

With Private Fire Temple and Fire Mountain Tour you will find out why actually Azerbaijan is called land of fire with visiting 17th century fire temple and hill that literally burning 4 millenniums. For centuries, fire-worshipers from faraway countries, and even priests from India have searched for the fire and found it in Absheron and built their main temple here - Surakhani Atashgah. The burning of the foot of the mountain (Yanardagh) for a long time is the main nuance that attracts attention. The most interesting thing is that the wind, rain and snow have not been able to extinguish this fire for 4,000 years.
