The Darvaza well The Door to Hell...
Very Informative Mail...
Its not the work of ,
but due to unfortunate soviet mining in 1950
its famous with the name of HELL'S DOOR.
This place in Turkmenistan is called by locals
“The Door to Hell”. It is situated near the small town of Darvaz.
The story of this place lasts already for 35 years.
Once the geologists were drilling for gas.
Then suddenly during the drilling they have found
an underground cavern, it was so big that all the drilling site
with all the equipment and camps got deep
deep under the ground. None dared to go down there
because the cavern was filled with gas.
So they ignited it so that no poisonous gas could come out
of the hole, and since then, it’s burning,
already for 35 years without any pause.
Nobody knows how many tons of excellent gas has been burned
for all those years but it just seems to be infinite there.
