Description [ correction ]

The Dallol area is at -116m below sea level is the 4th lowest place on Earth. Mushroom shaped salt rocks surrounds a salt lake bubbling with sulphurous gases; the volcanic activity giving rise to strangely shaped excrescences, coloured with a combination of bright and earthy hues, some of which burbled out spurts of fluid. Reds, greens, oranges, browns and blues are derived from the predominant mineral present.
