This place is the hottest place on earth! Measurements show that on average, Danakil is about 34 degree Celsius. During the summer, temperature can get up to a high of 55 degree Celsius thanks to geothermal heat caused by volcanic activity. It is 120 meters below sea level: this makes Danakil the lowest land depression on earth after the dead sea. Danakil depression is also a place where one of the oldest known human ancestors’ fossil was found. The 3.2 million years old Lucy’s (Denkenesh) fossil was found in the area called Hadar. The 4.5 million years old Ardi’s fossil was also found in this area. Due to the abundance of salt and mineral deposits, the Danakil is full of colorful and surreal landscapes such as hot springs and bubbling pools.
