Yanar Dag, the burning mountain, is a bizarre natural wonder that lives up to Azerbaijan’s nickname as the Land of Fire. Underground gas seeps out of the mountainside stretching approximately 10 meters and burns continuously. According to some sources, Yanar Dag ignited after a shepherd in the 1950s discarded a cigarette. Head up the steps to get views of the scorched hills and the occasional shepherd from a bygone era. It’s possible to visit both Ateshgah and Yanar Dag the same day itself. Take bus 217 from Koroglu Metro Station to get there.
