DANAKIL DEPRESSION

 

The Danakil Depression (or Dallol) is a geological deptression that is caused by the Afar Triangle Junction which is part of the Great Rift Valley.

The Dallol Depression, which straddles the Eritrean border to the north of Assaita and the east of the Tigraian Highlands, is officially the hottest place on Earth, with an average temperature of 34-35 Celsius.

Much of this vast and practically unpopulated region lies below sea level, dipping to a -116m at Dallol, near Lake Asale, the lowest spot of terra firma on the African continent.

One of the driest and most tectonically active areas on the planet, the Danakil is an area of singular geological fascination: a strange lunar landscape studded with more than 30 active or dormant volcanoes, malodorous sulphur-caked hot springs, solidified black lava flows and vast salt-encrusted basins.
