The Door To Hell

The Door to Hell, as locals call it, is situated near the small town of Darvaz in Uzbekistan. Thirty-five years ago, geologists were drilling for gas when then encountered a very large cavern underground filled with a poisonous gas. They ignited the gas expecting it to burn off in a few hours. Thirty-five years later, the gas is still burning.

    Amber: Many “poisonous” gases are only poisonous when in large concentrations, like Methane for example, and you can very easily stand at the mouth of a cave surrounded by our lovely atmosphere while said poisonous gases burn off.
