There are several places around the world that locals believe are a door to hell. But one place that attracted me the most is Darvaza The Burning Gates Gas Hole in Turkmenistan.

It is situated near the small town of Darvaz. The story of this place lasts already for 35 years. Once the geologists were drilling for gas. Then suddenly during the drilling they have found an underground cavern, it was so big that all the drilling site with all the equipment and camps got deep deep under the ground. During the dig they had found a cave that was filled with harmful gas so in attempt to remove the gas they had ignited it. So since 1973 it’s rich gasses have been ablaze, wasting away, without pause.  So they ignited it so that no poisonous gas could come out of the hole, and since then, it’s burning, already for 35 years without any pause.
Nobody knows how many tons of excellent gas has been burned for all those years but it just seems to be infinite there..

I would love to go here one day. But my biggest dream is to go to the The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt (look below). I am waiting...
