The Danakil, or Dallol depression, which encompasses a good portion of the eastern part of the Tigray region, is one of the earth’s hottest and most inhospitable places, with many points more than 100 meters (328 feet) below sea level and noon-time temperatures soaring above 50 degree Celsius (122 degree Fahrenheit).

It is the site of a dry salt lake from which Ethiopians since time immemorial have obtained their amoles, or bars of salt, used both for consumption and, long ago, as a primitive sort of ‘money’.

Minded by the Afar people for at least a millennium and a half, the salt is loaded on camels and taken to the highlands, where it is still in considerable demand and fetches a good price.

Volcanic activity, which greatly contributed to the formation of the Rift Valley, continues up to present times.

Dallol Depression

In Ethiopia you will be surprised in the presence of hot springs in many parts of the country, as well as volcanic cones in the Danakil Depression in the north-east. Hartale, also known as the living fire, is also found in this area and is the main attraction for tourists.
