“The Door to Hell”

“The Door to Hell” is a place near a small town called Darvaz at Uzbekistan. It’s been said that before 35 years, geologists tried drilling this place for gas and unexpectedly while drilling they discovered an underground cave. This underground cave was so huge, that it swallowed all the drilling site equipments as it was very deep. After that incident, no one was willing to go down that cavern. So, they set fire to that cave so no poisonous gas escaped from that hole. Ever since, it is burning for 35 years without any break. People are wondering how many tons of excellent gas has been trapped inside that cave so that it burns still now. It remains still a mystery.
