Darvaz: The Door to Hell

Pin It now!

Beautiful and creepy, this place is called by locals “The Door to Hell”. This huge hole in the ground situated in Darvaz, Uzbekistan was once the site of a gas drilling site where 35 years ago, geologists discovered a massive cavern filled with an unknown gas. It was claimed that since there was a danger of poisonous gases in the cavern, the drilling company decided to ignite the gases before proceeding with the drilling.

The hole has been burning ever since."
