'Well of Hell,' gaping desert hole, is shrouded in mystery

Recommended Posts

Far out in Yemen's remote eastern desert landscape, a gaping hole in the ground believed to be "million and millions" years old fascinates and mystifies locals. Shrouded in mystery, the Well of Barhout is in the Yemen desert, near the border with Oman. The natural wonder, popularly known as the "Well of Hell," is in the Al-Mahra province and is 100 feet wide and thought to reach 330 feet down, but there are those who claim it's as much as 820 feet deep.

Stories of demons and other supernatural figures known as jinns or genies that live in the well have circulated among locals over the centuries. Many nearby residents don't even like to talk about the hole, let alone visit it, for fear of bad luck.
