This giant desert has been on fire for decades and is located in Karakum Desert. It is known as the door to hell by locals and is now a tourist attractive place. Derweze is rich in natural gas and while drilling in 1971, the ground beneath collapsed, leaving a large hole. To avoid the toxic gas to come out, it was decided to burn it off. It was believed that the fire would use all the fuel after sometime, but, the gas was so powerful that it is still burning. It sounds weird but its sight is amazing to watch.
