This place in Uzbekistan is called by locals “The Door to Hell”. 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. None dared to go down there

WOAH! The story is one thing but when you see the pictures of this thing... It's quite beautiful. Does anyone know the Google Map co-ordinates or can anyone find it? I'd really like to see it on there.
Staggering to think it's been burning for 35 years, wonder how much gas has gone?
Nice find OP.
