This was the highlight of my trip to Ethiopia, the owners of the tour agency, arranged everything seamlessly. Every day on my 4 day tour had at least one amazing site to visit the Erta Alle volcano, Dallol coloured pools, the salt flats, hot springs, salt lake, salt mines etc. Food was very good as was our driver "Daniel"

I chose Ethio Danakil Tours because of the group size (other agencies take up to 30-40 people and this was only 12 people in 3 vehicles) and because someone, I believe on wikitravel, raved about This tours.

I recommend plenty of sunscreen, perhaps a hat for more sun protection, a couple snacks for when the drive is longer, hiking shoes, some warmer clothes to sleep in for the cool nights (in the dry season at least). Only criticism was the outside toilet anywhere situation, which I've heard is being addressed by all the tour agencies collectively.

I fully recommend this trip with the guides, chef, armed escort and drivers provided!

Daniel you're awesome, thanks again!! #danakil #ethiopia #africa #afar #mekelle #tigray #danakildepression #ethiodanakiltours #travel #travelphotography #travelblogger #travelholic #travelguide

بركان دلول-صحراء الدناكل-إثيوبيا 🇪🇹 يقع هذا البركان فى صحراء اثيوبيا فى منطقة يسكنها عدد قليل للغاية من الناس ويحيط بحفرة البركان مجموعة من التشكليلات والسهول التى تغطيها الثلوج فى تناقض غريب يجعل منه واجد من اغرب الاماكن السياحية فى العالم يوجد هناك ينابيع المياة الساخنة والينابيع الحمضية وسوف تشعر وكانك فى الفضاء الخارجى او على سطح القمر وليس فى احد الاماكن السياحية على الارض . ​

Volcano Dloul - Desert Aldnakl - Ethiopia 🇪🇹
This volcano is located in the Ethiopian desert in an area inhabited by very few people. The volcano's volcano is surrounded by a range of snow-covered formations and plains in a strange contrast that makes it one of the strangest tourist places in the world. There are springs of hot water and acid springs and you will feel like you are in outer space or On the moon and not in one of the tourist spots on the earth

A hot spring right next to a saline lake! How cool is that?

Not cool at all! You know what I mean.😁

Ethiopia is landlocked and has no direct access to the sea. But this lake is one of many saline lakes in the country and the closest substitute to seawater albeit much saltier!
.
The town surrounding this lake thrives by mining salt from the lake. Mineral salts are produced from this lake so it’s much cleaner than sea salt and no microplastic!

NBD. Just chillin’ in a hyper-saline pool somewhere 125m below sea level. 🇪🇹 🌋🏜🦠

This was definitely one of my most favorite features of Dallol.

The Danakil depression ‘The Most Inhospitable Place on Earth’. here lies the salty bed of Lake Asale.

The salt mines located in Lake Afar, which forms part of the depression, stretch some 60,000 square meters and go up to 100m below sea level. It is in this sun-baked crust that the salt trade has thrived, passed over from generation to generation for centuries. The nomadic Afar people have traveled here via camel caravans for hundreds of years to harvest the same salt blocks that you can buy in the markets of Addis Ababa and most other major cities in the region.

The extraction is laborious, and involves breaking the plates of salt from the earth’s crust and then chopping them into large slabs using axes. The big slabs are then cut into tiles of smaller sizes.

Once stacked, they are now ready for transport - predominantly by dromedaries the salt to a commercial town Berahile located about 50 miles away, a journey that takes three days.

But for all their efforts they earn on average 1 birr, the equivalent of five US Cents, for each salt tile they cut. On average a miner can cut up to 200 tiles a day.

Did you know?
Jørgen Johanson, the caravan comes in empty to carry the salt out, the Danakil Depression is among the hottest places on earth, it is also one of the lowest (Lake Asale: 116 metres (381 ft) below sea level), the Afar people are extracting salt, using camels for transport .

In the hottest and one of the lowest (at 137m below sea level!) places on earth. Dodging bubbling sulphur pits and appreciating 50° of heat. Wow! What an adventure. Thanks to the @thecarfilmingsafetyguy @msssafety for letting me be part of the experience.

#tbt “There's a reason we don't see the world in black and white ⚫️⚪️” ~Celerie Kemble 🔹 And here it is, #nofilter needed! Welcome to the Danakil Depression in the Afar region of Ethiopia. It is the hottest place on earth 🥵 🌏, reaching temperatures of 122F/50C. This is Dallol. It lies within the Depression. Here, volcanic activity heats spring water, bringing sulfur, salt and iron to the surface, leaving behind yellow, green, and orange deposits. Look how amazing nature is 👀! While it was a beautiful site to see, it was a bit smelly from the sulfur, plus extremely hot...my lips got sunburned, and when I took my hair down, there was a sun tan line where the braid was (but it’s ok, it looked like a crown 👸🏾). Exploring the Danakil Depression (4 days and 3 nights) was a highlight of my #rtwtrip, stay tuned for more.
