Door To Hell,” In Turkmenistan

Sorry about the title folks but please don’t get scared by this. This bizarre place entitled as the “Door to Hell” is situated in the Karakum Desert of Turkmenistan. It is nothing but a great giant hole set in fire since 1971. During the early 70’s some soviet geologists break into this hole while taking a survey of the area. The whole was quiet big, like 70m wide and was crammed with inflammable and poisonous gages. The gentlemen decided to set the hole in fire so that it will consume the harmful gases in it. But unfortunately they made some mistakes in the calculation and the hole is still burning since that period of time.
