    8 Amazing Holes!


    These holes are not only amazing, but some of them are really terrifying - especially #8! The sheer scale of these holes reminds you of just how tiny you are.
    1. Kimberley Big Hole - South Africa




    Apparently the largest ever hand-dug excavation in the world,
    this 1097 meter deep mine yielded over 3 tons of diamonds
    before being closed in 1914.


    2. Glory Hole - Monticello Dam, California
    A glory hole is used when a dam is at full capacity and water needs to be drained from the reservoir



    This is the 'Glory Hole' at Monticello dam, and it's the largest in the world of this type of spillway, its size enabling it to consume 14,400 cubic feet of water every second.


    3. Bingham Canyon Mine, Utah




    This is supposedly the largest man-made excavation on earth. Extraction began in 1863 and still continues today, the pit increasing in size constantly. In its current state the hole is miles deep and 2.5 miles wide.


    4. Great Blue Hole , Belize



    This incredible geographical phenomenon known as a
    blue hole is situated 60 miles off the mainland of Belize
    There are numerous blue holes around the world,
    but none as stunning as this one.

    5. Mirny Diamond Mine , Serbia



    I'm pretty sure most people have seen this one.
    It's an absolute beast and holds the title of largest
    open diamond mines in the world. At 525 meters
    deep, with a top diameter of 1200 meters, there's
    even a no-fly zone above the hole due to a few
    helicopters having been sucked in.


    6. Diavik Mine, Canada



    The mine is so huge and the area so remote that it has
    its own airport with a runway large enough to accommodate a Boeing 737.
    It looks equally cool when the surrounding water is frozen..


    7. Sinkhole in Guatemala



    These photos are of a sinkhole that occurred
    early this year in Guatemala . The hole swallowed
    a dozen homes and killed at least 3 people.




    And the really terrifying one?

    #8
