On the coast of the Pacific Ocean is one of the most mysterious places of our planet, called the Well of the Torah. Every day during the tide, amazing things happen here, the exact explanation that the scientists can not yet find. Among travelers and photographers this place was called "Gateway to Hell".
An unusual funnel in the coastal tidal band is located on Cape Perpetua, in the state of Oregon on the western coast of the United States. The diameter of the funnel is about 5 meters, but its exact depth is still unknown.
During the tide, the sea water begins to fill the funnel, and after a few seconds it throws it out. Then the water, boiling and foaming, re-fills the well, and this pulsation continues until the ebb tides come. When the water leaves the well, a fountain with a height of up to 6 meters can be formed. A picturesque sight attracts many tourists on the coast.
At low tide, the water that did not leave the sea gradually disappears from the funnel. Scientists believe that within the walls of the well there are several holes through which water during low tide seeps into the system of aisles and underground canals. Researchers express the opinion that in this region there can be an underground labyrinth, one of the outlets of which is the Well of the Torah.
The coast itself has a volcanic past, and its formation was influenced by constant eruptions. The current stratovolcano St. Helens, located not so far from Cape Perpetua, also indicates the turbulent past of the region. Frozen lava could form fanciful rocks, permeated with underground caves and passages, one of which is the Well of the Torah. Divers do not risk going down there, because there is a risk that powerful currents exist in the well and associated cave corridors. It often blows a gale wind, and the stones on the edge of the funnel are very slippery, so it is very difficult to lower some equipment in a short period of tide.
