Turkmenistan and Derweze door to hell

Jump to last reply

I was wondering if anyone seen in Derweze door to hell and if burn yet and can tell their experiences

What is Derweze " door to hell " ?

from wikipedia: While drilling in 1971, Soviet geologists tapped into a cavern filled with natural gas. The ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a large hole with a diameter of 70 metres (230 ft) at (The Gates of Hell). To avoid poisonous gas discharge, it was decided to burn it off. Geologists had hoped the fire would use all the fuel in a matter of days, but the gas is still burning today. Locals have dubbed the cavern "The Door to Hell".

I have already visited Ashgabat Mary Merv Nisa Kunya Urgench Turkmenabat Dasoguz All very interesting places
