Mouth To Hell In Siberia Has Stretched Over A Kilometre

Near the town of Batagay is a massive sinkhole also known as Mouth to Hell in Siberia continuously growing at the rate of 10 meters every year. Being the world’s biggest permafrost Crater scientists have warned the phenomena, as a sign of danger for what’s to come. 

The Mouth to Hell in Siberia crater has been frozen since the Ice Age, which is estimated to occur 2.58 million years ago. In 1960 due to the deforestation in the area, sunlight started hitting the ground and started to melt the ice within the soil, this led to climate change which eventually led to permafrost melting. 

According to the research, permafrosts happen either due to the melting of the ice or due to extreme weather. The Mouth to Hell in Siberia is growing at a rate of 20-30 meters every year and is unstoppable. 

Due to Global Warming more Mouth to Hell craters will be formed around the globe. This crater is around a kilometre long and 85 meters in depth. The exposed soil in the Mouth to Hell in Siberia is estimated to date back to 650,000 years old. It has helped a lot to study the geology of the Ice Age.  

Several preserved remains of animals have been excavated as the Mouth to Hell in Siberia crater widens up, including fossilised remains of mammoths, horses, and musk oxs. 

Residents of the town reported that they heard a rumbling sound coming from the site. The Yakuts who are the inhabitants of this area believe in the spiritual world. These inhabitants stay close to the environment relying on hunting and fishing for their livelihood.
