If someone imagined a gat to hell this is probably what it would look like, in fact the locals call it the “The Door to Hell”. Located in Uzbekistan near the small town of Davarez is this cavern that has been burning for 35 miles. Geologists drilling for gas found the giant cavern they found poison gas and being Russians they decided to ignite the gas to get rid of it.
The crater is more than 30 metres across and nearly twice as deep.
The Soviets have long since abandoned the site and rusting equipment is lying throughout the area.
The natural gas ignited more than 35 years ago still burns round the clock, and there is no estimate of how much as burned – this could be the source of all that global warming.
