Locals believed the dolls are possessed by the girl and some even claimed that the dolls whisper to each other.

2. Door To Hell, Turkmenistan

To prevent the spreading of gas, the crater was set on fire. Now over 40 years later, the hole is still burning and became one of the scariest tourist destinations in the world.

3. Hanging Coffins, Philippines
