There is a place on Earth where survival is almost impossible; and it is that living beings have reached practically every corner of the Earth; the hypersaline, hypersaline and hot waters of Dallol are an exception.

Today we will talk about a volcanic crater or maar in the Danakil depression, northeast of the Erta Ale mountain range in Ethiopia, with updrafts that create amazing springs of sulfur and mineral salt.

From a geological point of view, this peak in Africa is a mine. It is also one of the most inhospitable areas in the world: an ‘extraterrestrial’ landscape, with temperatures of more than 50 degrees, perforated by the wounds of the Dallol volcano and colored in bright yellow and green, with oozing magma and pools of boiling water.

It is one of the hottest environments on Earth and one of the most dangerous and beautiful places on Earth; You can enjoy its acidic beauty and salt craters in one of the tours that we offer you to get to know this and other parts of Ethiopia.
