These 6 places resemble hell on earth. The destinations are so terrifying that they might leave you wondering if the gates to hell aren’t here on this planet after all. Here, MusicSnake Magazine put together a list of six places that resemble Hell on Earth. Enjoy!
Masaya Volcano, Nicaragua
Located in Managua, Nicaragua, the Masaya Volcano is part of the first national park in Nicaragua but is quite terrifying to look at. Composed of 2 volcanos and 5 craters, 16th-century Spanish explorers were the first to name the active volcano The Mouth of Hell.
Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia
The Kamchatka Peninsula contains a whopping 160 volcanoes, of which 29 are active. One of the peninsula’s volcanoes, Tolbachik, particularly resembles hell on earth because of its molten, Mordor-like appearance. The volcano is surreal, and some may even consider it beautiful.
The Mayan Cenotes, Mexico
The Mayan Cenotes are a collection of underground caves and waterways located in Mexico and other parts of Central America. While many tourists flock to the caves today to see the impressive underground beauty, the caves have also housed Mayan temples and even human remains!
Erta Ale, Ethiopia
This is a perpetually active volcano located in Ethiopia. It so closely resembles hell that it’s even been used to represent hell in Hollywood! You can see the volcano in 10’s Clash of the Titans.
Mount Hekla, Iceland
This is is an active volcano in Iceland that’s had a long history of association with hell. Today, some people still believe that witches congregate on the volcano to meet up with satan. The volcano is 4,892 feet tall and is one of the most active volcanoes in Iceland; since the year 874, there have been an impressive 20 eruptions.
The place that most resembles hell on earth has to be Derweze, located in Turkmenistan. It’s called the Door to Hell and it is actually a natural gas field that collapsed into an underground cavern, but it is a lot more fun to think that there might be something more devilish hiding down there.
