The Door to Hell - What lies ahead?

This is a great hole in Darvaza which is rich in natural gas. Then geologists discovered an underground cavern filled with natural gas. But then the people decided to try out a bad luck, they burned out the gases. The locals recently tried to stop it, but too late and the burning has lasts for many times without a single pause. Now, the locals has called it "The door to hell" because of the fiery inferno comes out from the large hole.

The diameter of the hole is one big, 50-100 meters! Geologists couldn't explore the cavern because there is a large magma inferno outside the hole.

To be continued with new updates...
