While some people still believe the Earth is flat, most of us have seen the light and now realize that the Earth is in fact more a ball-formed shape. And even then, the Earth being flat was never a viable option considering how much mountains and sinkholes we have on our planet. We all know the biggest mountains by heart, but let’s dive deeper (pun intended) into some of the deepest holes the Earth has to offer.
Great Blue Hole, Belize
It’s 407 feet deep and it might just have the least inspired name in the world. It rose to fame after it was named as one of the best diving locations in the world and it’s actually currently being used for research about life in the ocean.
The Big Hole, Kimberley, South Africa
Said to be 3,599 feet deep (let’s say 3600 feet, no one will know), this hole is actually a big mine that wasn’t dug out by Mother Nature, but by us. We made it all by ourselves. And it’s also got a very uninspired name, which is too bad.
Glory Hole, Monticello Dam, California
Look, it’s a deep hole, it’s called the “glory hole” and it sucks up 48000 cubic feet of water per second. You know where I’m going with this.
