Jeromy Benavides The chicken marsala was off the chain. I highly suggest the nearby shopping too. Great live music! Laurens Hartog The Door to Hell is a natural gas field in Derweze (also spelled Darvaze, meaning "gate"). The Door to Hell is noted for its natural gas fire which has been burning continuously since it was lit by Soviet petroleum engineers in 1971. The fire is fed by the rich natural gas deposits in the area. The pungent smell of burning sulfur pervades the area for some distance. Diego Jofre False advertising, there was no door, just a hole on the ground with burning gas on it Murray Scott The main gas crater is a few miles north east of here. To visit this phenomenon is well worth the 4 hour drive from Ashgabat. Crossing the desert gives a sense of how vast and remote the Kara Kum desert can be. You must spend the night at the crater, it will be a night that you won't forget. There are no facilities so you must be prepared. If the sky is clear, it will be a bonus.
Murray Scott Adam Olden This is a bubbling crater full of mud and gas, but not burning. The fire crater is a few km's north east and on the other side of the road - a few km into the desert.
