The door to hell (10/10)

List item

Turns out the door to hell exists and it’s located in Turkmenistan. The village of Devisa is home to the Darweza gas crater which was unintentionaly created 1971 while soviet engineers were drilling for oil. Fearing the release of dangerous methane gas, the engineers decided to light the crater on fire in the hopes of burning off the methane. The crater has continued to burn over throughout the decades and has showed no signs of slowing down so now in the middle of the catacomb desert there is a 100 foot crater that persistantly on fire. 

Naturally the site is off limits to both tourists and almost all documentarians. You know, you wouldn’t wanna get pulled into hell would you?
