Quoted by the Science Times and National Geographic, some people have given the name of the recreation “hell's door”. Ouch, horror huh. Want to know what it's like? Yo.
Chinoike Jigoku, Japan
Located in the city of Beppu which is easy to reach by public transportation in Japan. As the name Jigoku means hell. This place provides a panoramic view of a blood-red pool that is billowing profusely. Even the temperature in the pool reached 78 degrees Celsius. Because of that it wouldn't be strange if this place was called the Bloody Pool of Hell.
The horror narrative completes the history of Chinoike Jigoku. Reportedly, according to Buddhist belief the pool was used to abuse several people and boil them to death. Dare to dive into this pool?
Kilauea Lava, Hawaii
Kilauea is one of the most active volcanoes in the world as part of the Volcanoes National Park in Hawaii. This mountain has been active since 1983 and most recently erupted in 2018 which resulted in the emergence of a Kilauea lava lake. The temperature reaches a range of 80-85 degrees Celsius.
Lava that pours into the ocean makes a fantastic panorama that attracts tourists and photographers from around the world. However, the US Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (USGS) still warns not to come at close range because the heat of the lava and the effects of the resulting acid smoke are very dangerous and even deadly.
Hells Gate Rotorua, New Zealand
Unlike the shadows of hell which visualize a panorama with blazing fire. Hells Gate Rotorua provides hot mud pools that blend with sulfur rocks. Many tourists take the time to soak here.
The recommended time for soaking in hot mud is only for 20 minutes because if more than that it can be dangerous to cause body temperature to increase. You will experience the sensation of returning fresh and relaxed after soaking in this pool.
Darvaza Crater, Turkmenistan
George Kourounis was the first person to visit and enter the Darvaza gas crater. Reportedly, the crater is 69 meters wide. and a depth of 30 meters. it was created due to a mistake in gas drilling carried out by the Soviet Union about 40 years ago.
This place is wide open for anyone who wants to visit. Often some people pass by on their motorbikes or cars and visit to witness the 'gates of hell'. Still keeping a distance from this crater because the hot air and the smell of gas that is produced can be harmful to the body.
Mount Pacaya, Guatemala
Not only Merapi in Indonesia, Pacaya volcano in Guatemala is one of the most frequently climbed volcanoes. Its easy access makes volcano lovers interested in attacking it. The greatest time to climb the 2552 mtr high mountain. this is from the end of November to March because at that time the dry season is in progress.
These are five places in the world that are called the “doors to hell”. Prepare enough guts, physique, and material provisions before you go on vacation to these places, OK?
