This place though not maintained as nice as other places in Baku, really does justice to what Azerbaijan is called for Land of Fire. We went there by bus (no 237 from Koroglu Metro) which only costs 10 cents for about 40 minutes. Got to...More

The flame is caused by gas going into the surface, feeding a perpetual flame. The view in top of the small hill is OK. I would not recommend this stop to be your main attraction, but as part of a tour or if you are...More

Quite unusual to see a natural outcrop of gas which has apparently been alight since records began but it is a long way out of town in a bit of a run down area and not really worth the trip to see a large bonfire!

You get a good understanding that this is a gas and oil country. Story goes that a shephard through a cigarette butt on the ground and the fire was lit. Worth checking out, take a walk up the hill for a view

These fires, caused by methane gas coming off the ground have been burning for millions of years. The site itself is very rural and very basic, but seeing the extraordinary fire that keeps burning is just a magical moment.
