The Danakil Depression desert is home to the globally unique natural phenomenon and the hottest place on Earth, Dallol. Erta'ale is one of Africa's few active volcanoes. During the late evening hours, one can climb the ascent of the crater rim to witness an unforgettable moment when a deep red light glows inside the molten lava mass of the crater.
