    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Ateshgah - Fire Temple, Сураханский район, Baku Azerbaijan

    The Baku Ateshgah, often called the "Fire Temple of Baku" is a castle-like religious temple in Surakhani town (in Suraxanı raion), a suburb in Baku, Azerbaijan.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Stop At: Yanar Dag, Binagadi-Balakhany Highway Absheron Peninsula - Village of Mammadli, Baku 0125 Azerbaijan

    Watch a mountain burning at Yanardag, where continuous natural gas flames light up a hillside near the Caspian Sea on the Absheron Peninsula. Part of Azerbaijan's enormous gas reserves leaks up through a thin, porous sandstone layer, igniting into flames that spread for about 10 m (33 ft). The spectacle--duly noted by Marco Polo--can reach up to 3 m (10 ft) in height, and burns in all weather. Plant yourself in the newly constructed amphitheatre opposite and take in the sight.

    Duration: 20 minutes
