Danakil Desert, to the north east of Ethiopia in Africa, is by far the hottest place on earth.
Ethiopia’s Danakil Depression is one of the hottest and harshest places on Earth.
Temperatures from 50 to 120 degrees Celsius range here.
It is known for its active volcanoes, formed due to frequent tectonic movements.
Unique to the desert is the salt lakes formed out of lava.
Despite hostile conditions, Danakil Desert is home to some tribes that live on selling the salt that is found here as well as mining.
High temperatures, wastelands of salt—it’s hard to imagine a more brutal landscape than Africa’s Danakil Desert.
But for the local people this is a home to die for.
The most dangerous place yet attracts adventurists, who are still experimenting on the climate, to know what it holds.
