Are You For Real? Gateway to hell lies in Turkmenistan!

Hell’s Gate is the nickname for this giant hole in the middle of  the Kara-Kum Desert in Turkmenistan. It was discovered in 1971, when the ground gave way under an excavation team to reveal an opening to a massive underground cavern of natural gas. The hole was set ablaze, to keep the toxic fumes from spreading, and it has been burning non-stop for the last 40 years.
