The Door of Hell!


 Door to hell, Derweze, Turkmenistan

Derweze is rich in natural gas, and while drilling in 1971, Soviet geologists tapped into a cavern filled with natural gas. The ground collapsed leaving a large hole 70 meters in diameter. To avoid poisonous gas discharge, it was decided that the best solution would be to burn it off. Geologists expected the fire to use all the fuel in a matter of days, however the gas is still burning today. 
The Locals have dubbed the cavern “The Door of Hell”, and it definitely looks like it to me!  Goosebumps here for sure!  I found this on a blog "
