The pictures are taken by Jay show that the natural scenery in Turkmenistan is very impressive. In addition, the buildings and architecture here are also carefully guarded by the government. After touring the capital Ashgabat, Jay drove north to climb the red rock mountain to admire the countryside below and then stopped at the gates of hell. This huge fire pit is located in the center of the Karakum Desert. In 1971, during a geological exploration there a group of Soviet geologists drilled underground tanks filled with gas. The cave collapsed, leaving a hole about 60-70m deep. Fear of gas poisoning in the cave caused heavy pollution to the environment, the government has decided to fire, with the hope gas in the pit will be exhausted in a short time. However, contrary to their calculations, the amount of gas was so great that the fire had been on fire for 40 years. The light from the fire pit can be seen from miles away. The place becomes the special destination in the world.
