1. Chestnut Ridge Park

This is one of the places where there are eternal natural flames. it is a recreational place situated in Orchard Park, New York, which is named originating from the chestnut trees on its hills. it is located behind a waterfall in shale creek preserve south of chestnut ridge park in northwestern pennsylvania. right in that location is a strange beautiful natural flame that can be viewed through the falling waters of the waterfall,and believed was set by native americans long years back ago....
scientifically, the chestnut ridge park flame is as a cause of ethane and propane. but with researches, the science of chestnut ridge is that the flames source is enclosed either by a rock or by sand because the ground is not hot enough to ignite the gas and keep it burning. the parks property was acquired by eric county in 1926 and was the first for county to establish.

Image result for The Brennender Berg( burning mountain)The glow burning of brennender berg mountain is a natural monument located within a deep and narrow gorge in saarland germany. the fire is a coal seam fire which since 1688 is burning till date. the unplanned coal mining resulted to spontaneous combustion caused by pressure and decomposition.
History recorded that the fire was set by a shepherd at a tree stump which penetrated the roots to the seam of the underground coal, where cracks are seen glowing out of rocks thereby building up smokes. due to rainfall and changes in weather, the smoke and light has reduced.
This unpredictable natural phenomenon makes this mountain a tourist area and/or destination for school trips and excursions. johann wolfgang von goethe's visit was the first tourism held at brennender berg in 1770 and a commemorative plaque records the event which he later explained that a strong sulphur smell enveloped him,with a reddish colour glowing which has roasted the rocks, adding that he felt the hotness despite the thick sole shoes he worn.

3.Water And Fire Cave

The water and fire cave is one of the seven most naturally made wonders in the world, and its situated in guanziling, in tainan city's baihe district. because of the most fantastic mud volcanoes and natural spring in this country,the geology of the place tends to release methane gas from cracks and faults, of which liuchong river runs through those faults bobbling out fire from the methane gas...
The incompatibility of the fire and water inside a cavry surrounding rock makes it a wonderful and tourist area in the world.one might not even think its a real fire till getting closer and feeling the heat of the fire.
practically, the flame has decreased but still impressive. records says the site was discovered by a monk in 1701,which entails that the flame has been burning continuously for years over.

4.Burning Mountain

This mountain is mount wingen but commonly called burning mountain. The mount is situated in new south wales, australia,224 km north of sydney off new england highway(approximately). its name was as a result of spontaneous combustion from a smouldering coal seam running underground through a sandstone.
the mountains blaze moves at a rate of about 1 meter each year due south.from when the flame started, it can be estimated that the fire has moved 6 kilometer, which makes it the oldest coal fire known since days.the fires combustion has caused a lot of damage to the soil including discolouring the soil,thereby making the ground an uneven surface.
this wonderful scenario has made it a beautiful tourist arena for people to visit.....................................................................read more and view images here
