YANAR DAGH, THE BURNING MOUNTAIN
A continuous fire that never extinguishes, Yanar Dagh brings out the true essence of the ‘Land of Fire’. It is believed that this blazing fire has greatly influenced the beliefs and traditions of the local people and has been celebrated in works of literature and art. The burning mountain is a favorite destination for tourists visiting the country. The mountain appears to be covered in tongues of flame from its foot to its peak, resembling red tulips. At first, such an unusual sight may give a strange impression, but this feeling turns into fascination upon watching the fire majestically seep out of the mountain core.
