Sinkhole, Guatemala

A sinkhole is caused when water (usually rainwater or sewage) is soaked up by the earth on a large scale, resulting in the ground collapsing.

Looking at photos like these scares and fascinates me in equal doses. The sheer scale of these holes reminds you of just how tiny you are. Here is the Name of 7 amazing Holes on the World.

1 Mirny Diamond Mine, Siberia
2 Kimberley Big Hole – South Africa
3 Glory Hole – Monticello Dam
4 Bingham Canyon Mine, Utah
5 Great Blue Hole, Belize
6 Diavik Mine, Canada
7 Sinkhole, Guatemala

Mirny Diamond Mine, Siberia


It’s an absolute beast and holds the title of largest open diamond mine in the world. at 525 metres deep with a top diameter of 1200 metres there’s even a no-fly zone above the hole due to a few helicopters being sucked in.
