The "well of hell" is a 100 feet wide and 400 feet deep pit in a desert in Yemen.
Some locals believe it's home to evil spirits.
That's why no one ever ventured inside it until the Oman Cave Exploration Team decided to take the plunge last year.
They didn't report anything supernatural but they did find dozens on snakes writhing around.Read more on weird scienceHELL FIRE Inside 'Door to Hell' – scary images reveal huge crater that's ALWAYS burningHOLEY MOLEY Sinkhole containing hidden forest found in China and could have unknown species
The pit in the eastern province of Al-Mahra is thought to be millions of years old and the team also discovered dead animals and cave pearls.
"There were snakes, but they won't bother you unless you bother them," Mohammed al-Kindi, a geology professor at the German University of Technology in Oman, told AFP at the time.
Kindi was among eight experienced cavers who ventured into the cave, while two colleagues remained at the top.
The massive hole is officially known as the Well of Barhout, with many locals convinced the natural wonder is a prison for demons.Most read in News TechDREAMS DASHED Major blow for Elon Musk as Starlink broadband is REJECTED by authoritiesLOVE MACHINE I flirted with Mark Zuckerberg's AI – it rejected me but 'likes guys & girls'DYSTOPIAN NIGHTMARE Panic sparked over Elon Musk's 'terrifying' humanoid Tesla robotQUICK MATH Burger, hotdog and fries puzzle tests your brain – is your IQ high enough?
Stories have circulated for centuries about mythical figures such as jinns or genies living in the well - and some regard it as the gate of hell.
Many locals are petrified of even visiting the vast pit, or talking about it in case it brings bad luck.
And the tales about the presence of evil spirits in the cave have been bolstered by the foul and toxic odours rising from its depths.
But the team who bravely decided to journey into the cave were stunned to discover grey and lime-green cave pearls, formed by dripping water.
"Passion drove us to do this, and we felt that this is something that will reveal a new wonder and part of Yemeni history," Kindi, who also owns a mining and petroleum consultancy firm, said.Read More on The US SunHAMMER TIME Armie Hammer goes shirtless & reveals bizarre new tattoo in rare public outingCHICKEN WINNER I tasted 4 rotisserie chickens including Costco - there was a clear winner
"We collected samples of water, rocks, soil and some dead animals but have yet to have them analysed.
"There were dead birds, which does create some bad odours, but there was no overwhelming bad smell."5Some locals believe it's home to evil spiritsCredit: Newsflash 5The "well of hell" is 100 feet wide and 400 feet deepCredit: AFP

And England boss Southgate said: “Of course, the pressure is coming for us.
“You’re going to a World Cup. You would not choose to go into a World Cup with the run of results we’ve had. But, actually, we’re stronger for that. The players have to take some ownership.”

Southgate added: “When it’s going well, it’s enjoyable. But it doesn’t breed that hardness you’re going to need.
"We can play friendlies where we don’t learn so much about people.
“We’ve been tested against high-level opposition. Players had to come through more scrutiny, a bit of pressure.
“Whether we want to delay it, make it comfortable, in the end that pressure is coming.Most read in SportEND ZONE?
