Here’s some of the most bizarre places you’ve probably never imagined in your wildest dreams! Some of them are certainly jaw dropping.

Gate of Hell, Turkmenistan

1. The Gate of Hell, Turkmenistan –  Located in the middle of the Karakum desert is a small village named Derweze, an area rich in natural gases in northern Turkmenistan. It is also the place of the so-called Doors or Gates of Hell, a crater that burns like a torch day and night and whose flames can easily be seen from miles away. It’s not a creation of the nature, but an accident caused by people during the mineral exploration. In 1971, the drilling operations have caused a collapse of caverns, leading to the creation of a crater with a diameter of 60 meters and a depth of 20 meters. The probe was burned to remove toxic gases, but it burns without interruption ever since.
