Doorway to hell

(Image: Wikipedia: Tormod Sandtorv)

Keeping with the hellish theme, is this place - the Darvaza Crater a natural gas field, now a crater, in the middle of the Karakum desert in Turkmenistan

You can see why it has been dubbed the Doorway to Hell. It has been burning continuously since 1971 with no sign of burning out. Probably not to place to plan for your next family holiday!

See what it is really like.....
