There is a fiery pit in Turkmenistan called the ‘Gates of Hell’. In the desert region of Turkmenistan, there is a large crater 30 meters deep and 70 meters wide in the north, which is called the ‘Gateway to Hell’. Even after 50 years, the fire coming out of this crater has not been extinguished.

The special thing about this pit is that it is not a natural pit, but a human achievement. The crater was formed in 1971 due to an accident during the exploration of gas deposits in the former Soviet Union.

There are many stories related to the crater. Its name is said to be due to the fact that the light and heat generated here late at night used to attract animals and die there, hence the name ‘Gateway to Hell’.

In this regard, the President of Turkmenistan, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, says that due to this pit, the environment and the health of the people living around are having negative effects.

When was this crater formed and what is the secret behind the continuous fire in it? In 2013, a team from National Geographic Channel reached this desert region of Turkmenistan to find out the answer, but instead of uncovering this important secret, more questions arose in their minds.

According to Experts, in 1971, Soviet Union geologists were searching for crude oil deposits in this desert. In this area, they found natural gas deposits, but during the exploration, the ground sank and 3 large pits were formed there.
