250 km north of the city of Ashgabat is a place that attracts tourists from many countries with its appearance. At one time there was a village called Darvaza (Gate), where ordinary people lived and did not know about the existence of underground bowels. But the time came when large gas reserves were discovered there. It was the eighties of the last century. One day, due to the excess amount of gas production, cavities formed in the ground, which led to an accident. The earth sank and gas began to seep into the external environment. They say all the equipment failed there, but no one was injured. When the gas began to sow on the ground, they decided to set fire to the pit... But not a single person had any thoughts that this pit would burn until today, and also attract people.
“I visited the Darwaza gas crater at night and it looked so spectacular. The sight is extremely unusual. You can't get close, especially downwind. If possible, be sure to go and see "live".”
