6 Massive Natural And Man-made Holes In The World


In our search for immeasurable wealth through minerals, diamonds, and whatever else can be discovered while digging under the ground, we’ve created a lot of holes. Sadly, a lot of these remain today, leaving massive scars across the planet. These enormous holes produce some truly impressive finds, whether they are natural or man-made. Located all over the world, these holes are certainly worth a visit simply for their sheer impressiveness. Here are 6 impressive natural and man-made holes around the world.

The Monticello Dam is located in Napa County, California, US, and is notable because of the huge circular spillway that drains 48,400 cubic feet of water every single second of the day. California could have used that water recently.
