Sometimes flames in Yanardag jet into the air 10-15 meters. The fire in the area has started since the ancient times of the history. The Yanar Dag fire is never extinguished. Around this open fireplace the atmosphere is filled with the smell of gas. The flames emanate from vents in sandstone formations and rise to a height of 10 metres.
