Description: This place Darvaz, Uzbekistan and is called by locals The Door to Hell. 35 years ago geologists were drilling for gas, when they found an underground cavern; no one dared to go down into it because it was filled with gas. They ignited it so that no poisonous gas could come out and for the last 35 years it has been burning.
