Oh Deary Me.

Rowan, 18 and basically the best person you will ever meet.

Door to Hell, Derweze, Turkmenistan
The Derweze area is rich in natural gas. While drilling in 1971, Soviet geologists tapped into a cavern filled with natural gas. The ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a large hole with a diameter of 70 metres. To avoid poisonous gas discharge, the best solution decided was to burn it off. They had hoped the fire would use all the fuel in a matter of days, but the gas is still burning today. Locals have dubbed the cavern “The Door to Hell”.
