Experts Have Found the 'Door To Hell'?! Must See!

     There has been a fiery crater that has been burning in the middle of the desert for decades, and the experts have dubbed or called it as the 'Door to Hell.' It seems that the fiery crater was a natural gas field and has been on fire since the year 1971.

     The Door to hell can be found at Derweze, Turkmenistan. The place has been found by Soviet engineers in the year 1971, and thought that it has oil deposits. They dig and assessed the amount of oil in the crater, but unfortunately, the area he was producing natural gas instead. The area that they have dug in eventually collapsed which formed a deep crater.



     The Geologists then have decided to set the crater on fire so as to prevent the methane gas from spreading. They thought that the fire would only last for a few weeks, but never did they knew that it will still be on fire for four decades and more.

     The President of Turkmenistan has ordered to close the said fiery crater last 2010 to prevent it from damaging other natural gas sites near it. While the fiery crater has been featured in one of the episodes on the National Geographic Channel last July 16, 2014.
