10. Mount Baldy
This series of holes actually baffle scientists. The Indiana Dunes National Park was once a great tourist attraction, and it has a unique history all its own. But, in 2013, things started getting weird. The sandy dune literally swallowed up a six-year-old boy, but don’t worry! He made it out ok! What happened is that a sinkhole suddenly appeared beneath him out of nowhere, and it took three hours to get it him out of there. I’m sure it was scary but It could have been much worse.
9. Devil's Sinkhole
Sinkholes are a natural phenomenon that are very dangerous as you can see from what I just told you in the previous entry, but they can also create some pretty wondrous stuff. The Devil's Sinkhole in Edwards County, Texas for example is one such place. This massive sinkhole is a fully formed hole at 50 feet wide! And what's more, it's 350 feet deep.
8. The Bingham County Mine
Not all hole and gaps in the Earth are naturally made. We’ve been around for quite a while, and we've made our impression on the planet. But no doubt one of the most impressive things we've ever done is the Bingham County Mine, along with the Berkley Mine. These mines are impressive on numerous scales and levels, to the extent that Bingham is actually the world's' largest copper mine, and Berkley isn't too far behind that.
7. The Three Holes Of Siberia
Yes, I'm going to talk about a trinity of holes here instead of one, but they're all in one location, Siberia. What's more, how these holes were formed are believed to be from one singular instance within the Earth itself. So despite them being in different places (sometimes miles apart), they really are connected.
6. The Earth's Heartbeat
There are two different boreholes on this list, or holes that were drilled down by man. The biggest one is very high up on the list, but this one here made me smile the most. It was called the German Superdeep Hole, and it was a project that ended drilling in 1994. Now, like the other borehole on this list, the intent was to dig as deep as possible into the Earth to find out what it was like down there both rock wise and heat wise. Yet, one person had a different idea for the whole.
5. Dead Sea Sinkholes
I touched on sinkholes before, but this is on a much grander scale. In the Dead Sea, an alarming amount of sinkholes are being made. To prove just how scary this is, in the last 15 years alone, a thousand more sinkholes have appeared within the sea. There are many reasons for this occurrence, but one of the biggest ones is that the Dead Sea is getting a lot smaller. In fact, it's about one-third of the size it was back in the 1960's.
4. Dean's Blue Hole
Hey! Mind out of the gutter! This is a natural occurrence, not a sick joke. You see, we just talked about sinkholes that can form under a sea, but this? This is different. This is a massive hole that is located in the Bahamas. Which is honestly a bit more impressive that thousands of tiny sinkholes. Dean's Blue Hole (again, that's its real name!) is 663 feet deep. And because of how it's formed, you can see it from the surface of the water, and its much darker in blue color because of it.
3. The Black Hole Of Andros
Can I just note that this would be a great name of a sci-fi film? Seriously picture it, it would be boss. Ahem.
If Dean's Blue Hole was a wonderful location to visit, the Black Hole of Andros is exactly the opposite. For if you go there, you're likely going to die. While it is in the Bahamas, the island of South Andros is definitely one you don't want to go to.
2. Kola Superdeep Borehole
Since humanity started to wonder more about the planet we lived on, the desire to dig deep into the Earth became a fascination. Some people even thought it was possible to dig their way to China from the US, an idea that was thankfully debunked, yet still is a good story.
1. The Song Doong Cave
You might be wondering, "Why is a cave at the top of a list about holes?" Well, it's because this cave is the largest in the world, and it can only be accessed via a hole that honestly shouldn't have been found in the first place.
