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. To visit Yanardag and get the most from your holiday in Baku, create itinerary details personal to you using our Baku trip itinerary planning site.
