Danakil Depression

Danakil Depression, also called Afar Depression, is a geological depression in the Horn of Africa, where it overlaps Eritrea, the Afar Region of Ethiopia, and Djibouti. Danakil is well known as one of the cradles of hominids, containing the Middle Awash, site of many fossil hominid discoveries, site of the world’s oldest stone tools, and Hadar, site of Lucy, the fossilized specimen of Australopithecus afarensis.

Erta-Ale means “Smoking Mountain” in the local Afar language and its southernmost pit is known locally as “the gateway to Hell”. Erta Ale is centered over the east African rift valley system and the volcano comprises mainly Mafic material which has been brought up to the surface caused by un roofing of the mantle due to the formation of the pull-apart basin
