Darvaza gas crater

Located on the heart of the Karakum Desert of central Turkmenistan sits a crater of fire with the size of an American football field that has been perpetually burning now for almost fifty years. Dubbed the Door to Hell or Gates of Hell it’s a surreal feature in an otherwise barren landscape.
