What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Yanar Dag, Binagadi-Balakhany Highway Absheron Peninsula - Village of Mammadli, Baku 0125 Azerbaijan
Our Next stop will be Yanar Dag mountain, which makes Azerbaijan called The Land of Fire because of its rich oil and gas resources. The natural fire that have been blazing in various parts of the country for millennia have greatly influenced the beliefs and traditions of the local people and has been celebrated in works of literature and art. An example of this natural phenomenon is found 25 kilometres from Baku, in a place known as Yanardagh located in the village of Mahammadli. The natural gas that seeps onto the surface gives this mountain (whose name translates as ‘burning mountain’) its famous ‘burning’ look. In order to protect Yanardagh and attract tourists here, this area was declared a historical, cultural and natural reserve in 2007.
